High Street Heroes in Stonehaven
By Dawn Black on 03/11/2020
As part of the Scotland Loves Local campaign, Scotland's Towns Partnership are celebrating our High Street Heroes through these Awards. .
The awards recognise the people, businesses and local organisations who have gone above and beyond to support their communities during the coronavirus restrictions. High Street Heroes also celebrates those who have helped local shops and high streets to be innovative, resilient, and to operate in a safe and welcoming manner.
Scotland’s Communities Secretary Aileen Campbell praised each and every one of them for their efforts, saying: “I would like to thank these High Street Heroes for going the extra mile to help their communities during the coronavirus pandemic.
“I am pleased the Scottish Government has been able to support these awards through our funding for Scotland’s Towns Partnership. They typify the kind of community spirit that has supported people and improved lives.
“This has been a difficult year for all of us, and the only way we will get through is by sticking together, being kind, and offering help where it is needed. The fact that these awards received more than 1,200 nominations just shows how much people have appreciated those who have pulled together to help one another.”
