Girlguiding East Renfrewshire has a new ambassador in councillor Mary Montague.

The East Ren Council representative was presented with her badge at a recent recognition evening, where volunteers were awarded qualifications and long service awards.

Councillor Montague said: “I am honoured to be given this exciting new role with such a prestigious and worthwhile voluntary organisation.

I look forward to working with and on behalf of Girlguiding East Renfrewshire in the great work their valued volunteers do week in, week out.”

Some 27 volunteers were also honoured at the event, with long-service awards totalling 235 years of service between them, as well as 13 receiving their leadership or residential qualifications.
