OFFICIAL STATEMENT – Scotswoman of the Year Awards 2019 in light of COVID-19



With the ongoing Coronavirus situation and predictions that infection rates will escalate in the coming weeks, Newsquest Scotland has reluctantly had to postpone the Scotswoman of the Year Awards event which was due to take place on Thursday, March 26 at the Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow.


We have a duty of care to our guests, sponsors and staff and believe it is the safest option in the current circumstances.


Although the latest government advice is that events of this nature are able to go ahead we want to make sure that our celebrations can be enjoyed by everyone – guests and finalists alike.


We will be in touch as soon as possible, with all our guests, once a new date has been confirmed.

Thank you for your understanding.


Yours sincerely


Donald Martin


Newsquest Scotland
