The tireless work of community activist David Rintoul is to be recognised at the City Chambers with the award of this year's Sir William Y Darling Bequest for Good Citizenship.

Mr Rintoul, 64, who lives in Tollcross, will receive the honour from Lord Provost George Grubb on Tuesday in recognition of years of service to the area.

He has been an active member of Tollcross Community Council for 15 years, spending five years as its chairman, and also runs the Tollcross Online community website in his own time.

He was nominated for the award by the Tollcross Traders' Association. Chairman John Saunderson said: "We nominated him for everything that he does for the area. He does a lot for the community council and he's helped us with our association – he's very deserving of this. We brought it up at one of our meetings and all the traders agreed that we should nominate David for everything he's done."
