WE’RE on the countdown to the launch of this year’s Dunfermline Press Community Champions Awards – honouring the unsung heroes who make West Fife such a strong and special community

Now in their fifth year, the aim of the awards is to champion the people who make our communities a better place.

Soon, we’ll be asking you, our readers, to nominate the heroes who deserve to be honoured in 2019.

But we’re also grateful to some of Dunfermline’s big-hearted businesses, who have been at the forefront of joining the Press in championing our communities.

Press editor Simon Harris said: “We couldn’t stage this event without the help and support of the firms who get behind the awards and I’d like to thank Amazon, Canvas Holidays, Fife Council and TechnipFMC for their continued support of the awards and we look forward to working with them this year to celebrate our community.

“There is still time to get involved as a business and show your support for everything that’s positive in Dunfermline and West Fife. If you would like more information on the opportunities available, please contact Kirsty Durham, events business development executive, on kirsty.durham@newsquest.co.uk”

Don’t miss this year’s launch, when we’ll be asking you to nominate your community champions this year. Keep your eye on the Press in the coming weeks.
