Community heroes in Dunbar were recognised at a ceremony organised by the local community council in the Town House on Monday evening.

Elaine O’Brien (pictured right) was presented with the Community Council Award for her “exceptional contribution” to the town.

The Bowe Cup for a young person who has shown commitment to the community was awarded to Sophie Kaszuba (pictured left).

The accolades were presented by Stephen Bunyan, chairman of Dunbar Community Council, who received an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for his service to East Lothian.

Other youngsters who were recognised were athlete Maria Lyle, who has set new International Paralympic Committee world records at both 100m and 200m in 2014.

The awards night heard Craig Thorburn had shown “inspirational commitment” to academic study, music and the media, and enjoyed his time as a presenter and DJ on local radio. He will take up a place at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the USA in 2014.

Connor McLellan has been head boy at Dunbar Grammar School in the year 2013-14, and has used his status and influence to fundraise widely for charity.
