Achievements come in all shapes and sizes

The incidental theme of this week’s Courier seems to be ‘achievement’ with reports on almost every page about awards, prizes and accolades.

There are career achievements: Susan Campbell completing 40 years of teaching, Emma-Jane Ritchie’s 10-year international modelling career and electrical apprentices Kieran McMurchy and Amanda Clements being short-listed for awards.

There are voluntary achievements: retained firefighter Ashleigh Conner passing her ‘blue light’ training allowing her to drive the town’s fire engines and Steve Byrne’s award for his work as secretary of Dalintober and Millknowe Tenants’ and Residents’ Association.

There are achievements for youngsters: Castlehill Primary School’s senior pupils’ recognition for their WW1 project, and prize-giving ceremonies for the 1st Campbeltown Company Boys’ Brigade, Rhunahaorine Primary School and Campbeltown Pupils Youth 2005s.

And, as ever, there are the worthy winners of many tough sporting competitions.

The Courier is proud to be a platform where people can shout about how well they are doing across many, varied areas.

Well done to all of those who appear in this week’s pages for their achievements great and small.
