“It is always such a special evening and because it is so special to us, we want to take good care of it and everyone who comes along on the night and supports our awards.
“Under the current circumstances, it is with some sadness that we have decided not to hold our Press Community Champions Awards in 2020 as, in common with many other events scheduled across Scotland later this year, it is simply not possible for us to host the event as it has become known and loved, given continuing restrictions on social distancing.
“We plan to be back next year and, in the meantime, please continue to nominate your community champions from Dunfermline and West Fife.
“Our awards are about honouring and celebrating the unsung heroes who go the extra mile to help their community. In these unprecedented times, it is has been our privilege to report on so many of these heroes over the past few weeks and we can’t wait to give them the recognition they so richly deserve at our awards ceremony next year.
“See you at the Dunfermline Press Community Champions Award 2021. Stay safe.”
