Ijaz Nazir, owner of Jaz Licensed Grocer in Craigmillar, was selected to receive the honour for his active role in building bridges between Asian traders, police and local communities. And the 40-year-old, who moved here from Pakistan 17 years ago, collected his award from Lord Provost Lesley Hinds at a ceremony in the City Chambers last night. Mr Nazir was born in Sahiwal, near Lahore, and now lives in Blackchapel, between his business in Craigmillar and Kinnaird Park.
