Hyslop said: “At a time when the world is becoming more global it is important that people obtain a better understanding of their own local environment.
Why do we need a new awards scheme? Hyslop said: “The My Place Awards are unique in promoting a community focus and understanding local needs. These are projects selected by those who have experienced the schemes first hand.”
Angus Kerr, chairman of the judging panel noted: “This is not a peer award, it’s a people award.”
