One of the last duties of any Lord Provost is to present their own awards and the city’s Loving Cup at a grand civic dinner. Bob Winter who has been Lord Provost for the past five years took great delight in hosting the chosen individuals who have brought honour to the city in many categories.
It is precisely that positive outlook that gives new energy to Glasgow and to its citizens. The place needs people who are DOING good things – often unknown outside their own circle of expertise or interest.
So it will be interesting to see what new energy the councillors who succeed in being elected in May, bring to the job and to the Council Chambers. They are, after all, the elected representatives who steer the Dear Green Place through good times and bad.
Let’s hope that the LOVING CUP is one they can all drink from together.
