Staff and regulars at the Kirky Puffer pub, on Kirkintilloch’s Cowgate, have been celebrating after being named Community Pub of the Year for the West of Scotland.

The award was made by pub group JD Wetherspoon in recognition of their “outstanding links in the local community and fundraising for charities”.
