We asked and you nominated! 

We had lots of nominations, all with great reasons. Our local hero this year is John Allan.

“He has volunteered at Crawforddyke Primary for years. He runs sports clubs, organises teams for competitions and helps out where ever he can. Even during covid, putting his own health at risk he has come to the school to work with groups of kids outside.”
