Presenter Jennifer Reoch to crown winners at Tele awards

A MUCH-loved Scottish television and radio personality says she feels ‘honoured’ to be presenting the Greenock Telegraph Community Champion Awards for another year.

Jennifer Reoch will be handing out the well-deserved prizes at the glittering event at Greenock Town Hall on Friday May 5.

The Heart Scotland star was last at the glittering gala with the people of Inverclyde back in 2019.

Winners were due to be crowned at the event in 2020, but the coronavirus outbreak shelved the celebration.
