Sporting heroes honoured
A WEALTH of talented athletes, coaches and volunteers have been applauded for their outstanding achievements at the Annandale and Eskdale sports awards.
The glittering event in the Buccleuch Centre, Langholm, praised all the nominees for their success and determination and gave a flavour of their performances locally, nationally and internationally.
A number of them were from Eskdale and were proud to represent their community on their home turf.
One of two special awards was presented to David Stevenson of Langholm for his outstanding contribution to sport in the valley over decades. The other was presented to Paralympian Libby Clegg.
