The event was attended by NLC’s education boss Christine Pollock as well as Deputy Provost Councillor Jean Jones plus Councillors Heather McVey and Alan Stevenson who distributed the certificates.

A special certificate was given recently to Aileen Bisset who was awarded for her services to adult eduction in the area.
