Local Brown Owl Susan Jeffrey will be awarded the Tam Tierney Award for good citizenship at next weeks Drylaw and Telford Community Council.
The award was set up following the death of Tam who was a community activist for many years.
Susan has spent over thirty years helping at the Brownies in Drylaw Church.
Community council chairman Alex Dale said: “We had four very worthy nominations for the Award this time round but Susan was the stand-out choice. To have volunteered with the local Brownies for thirty years shows incredible commitment and dedication.
“People like Susan help make communities better places to be and we are looking forward to presenting the award next week.”
The community council’s monthly business meeting will be held in Drylaw Neighbourhood Centre on Wednesday 25 March at 6.30pm and will be followed by the Award presentation and reception.
We will attend the presentation and run a story on it on Thursday.
