It was now a question of wait and see.
The final results were to be announced at an award ceremony in London, to which we were only allowed to send two representatives.
These were Malcom and Lorna MacDonald.
There were five possible category winners in each region worth £500, for Community Life, Business, Young People, Older People and Environment. These were open to all County winners not just regional winners.
There was a prize for Information Communication Technology and a prize for the overall winner, Calor Village of the Year, worth £6,000.
