Proud of your area?

ARE YOU proud of your home town? Do you love your village or do you feel your local community is the friendliest in the country?

If so, why not vote for your special place and help it win the Civic Pride Award for Scotland’s favourite location.

Civic Pride is a brand new category in the well-established Scottish Design Awards, which this year take place on May 25 at the Radisson Hotel, Glasgow.

The nominations process has already begun thanks to an association with KILTR, the social network for everyone with an interest in Scotland.

But there is still time for (paper name) readers to add your town, village or community to the list.

Just log on to www.scottishdesignawards.com and follow the link. And be sure to tell your family and friends to join in.

If you love the place you live why not shout it out from the rooftops!
