Robert Melvin and Flora Pagan, both 82, were joint winners in the Senior Award category at the South West Community Champion Awards at Pollok Community Centre.
Cheers and applause greeted them as they made their way to the stage to collect their awards at the glittering ceremony.
It was a chance to recognise the unsung heroes in our community and allow them to take centre stage.
Robert, from Giffnock, who has been working for the community for decades, looking after the Govan Old Church and the Historic Stones, said: "I am chuffed, not for myself but for the people of Govan that I represent in the church.
"I think the awards are very worthwhile and it is gratifying to see so many people here."
Flora is vice-chairwoman of Govan Community Council, social convenor of Govan Reminiscence, board member of Govan Workspace and a member of Govan Fair.
She said: "I don't do things for recognition, I do it because I want to do them.
"I wouldn't have thought anything of it, but obviously someone thinks I have done something right. It is lovely to think you have done something right."
The South West is the fifth event in the fourth series of Community Champion Awards.
The awards recognised groups and individuals who have made an outstanding contribution from Govan right up the Darnley areas.
Winners will go on to be finalists for the grand final ceremony, to be held at the City Chambers in December.

The Individual Award went to Patricia Currie, who works hard to keep Park Villa Football Development group going.
