Nominations are being sought for an award that recognises the efforts of those who go above and beyond for their community.
The High Street Heroes Awards celebrate the contribution of local residents, businesses and organisations that have made a difference – from helping vulnerable neighbours to keeping town centres welcoming and safe.
The awards are being organised as part of the Scotland Loves Local campaign, which encourages shoppers across the country to think local first and back businesses in their own town centre or high street before travelling further afield or going online.
Nominations opened yesterday and close at 5pm on Friday.

Phil Prentice, chief officer of Scotland’s Towns Partnership, said: “Despite the challenges that they have faced, an amazing number have been at the heart of community responses, easing issues faced by their customers and neighbours, whether that be through making deliveries or even the simple act of regular phone calls to make sure that vulnerable people are well.
“Many have also contributed to ensuring our town centres are clean, safe and welcoming places to visit as lockdown restrictions have eased. We want to shine a spotlight on all that they have done.”
