Killie Wins – Most Improved Town

WE DID IT - KILMARNOCK WINS IN  MOST IMPROVED TOWN CAREGORY

The winners were announced last night, Thursday 10 December at the 2015 SURF Awards Presentation Dinner event.

Delivered in partnership with the Scottish Government, the SURF Awards were open to all community regeneration projects in Scotland that are currently in place or that were completed within two years of the closing date. The Awards aim to :

  • recognise and reward best practice and innovation in community regeneration;
  • promote and disseminate best practice across Scotland as means of sharing knowledge and experience, and thereby enhancing future policy and practice;
  • highlight the role that regeneration projects have in improving the wellbeing of individuals and communities.

The SURF Awards offers an opportunity for regeneration projects of all sizes to demonstrate value to funders and partners, support team-building and develop a national profile. Having assessed over 50 applications across five categories, SURF’s panel of 22 judges, drawn from national bodies and community groups, announced 16 shortlisted projects for 2015, including Irvine and Kilmarnock and Kilmarnock lifted the award. 

Well done Killie!
