various projects were under taken by the publicity group. One such being the dispersing of the community associations leaflets produced of Cruden Bay. I ventured up the North East Coast with the leaflets and visited various tourist hot spots . I commissioned local artist Gillian Paterson to design the connecting route, depicting all the tourist agencies I liaised with in helping to bring our coastal areas together. In 2004 Hughie McIntyre of the Cruden Bay Community Association nominated my work for the Northern Lights Tourism Awards.
