Junior Citizen Nominations

A POOR response has prompted Carnoustie Community Council to extend the deadline for nominations for this year’s Junior Citizen of the Year award.

Community Council chairman Jim Simpson explained: “We have had a greater number of nominations than usual for the Citizen of the Year Award, but unfortunately only one Facebook nomination for Junior Citizen.

“There must be many Carnoustie youngsters, dedicated to a particular sport or the arts for example, or perhaps who have triumphed over some adversity, who deserve the recognition of the community.”

If you know of anyone under the age of 18 who fits this category then please send your nomination along with a brief description of their achievements to Jim Simpson, 38 Maule Street, Carnoustie DD7 7AP by Saturday July 9.

Alternatively, nominations can be made via the Our Carnoustie Facebook page.
