Court of Deans Meeting

Court of Deans Meeting

Garry Stevens No Comment
The Court of Deans of Scotland is an Association of eleven Guildries : Aberdeen, Arbroath, Ayr, Berwick upon Tweed, Brechin, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Lanark, Perth and Stirling.    Two meetings are held annually, an AGM in the Spring and an Autumn gathering, the latter was held in Aberdeen at the end of October with an attendance of forty-six representing all other than Edinburgh and Stirling.    The Court last met in Aberdeen in 2011 and will not meet here again until 2022.   Aberdeen City Council hosted us and provided coffee or tea and butteries on arrival and a thoroughly enjoyable lunch in the Town and County Hall.    The Lord Provost joined us for lunch and formally welcomed the delegates to our city.
Before lunch the Court held a business meeting following which our Assessor Dr. Chris Croly gave an illustrated talk on the history and architecture of Aberdeen City Centre, and following lunch the delegates split into two groups each of which was given a guided tour of the Town House and the Marischal Quad by Town Sergeants.    The day concluded with afternoon tea.
I thank everyone who contributed toward the success of this event and of course I particularly thank the Council and Council Officers who assisted.
