On Saturday 29th June, Dame Anne attended the Torry Lighthouse Festival at the Tullos Playing Fields. Dame Anne spoke to stall-holders including the Aberdeen Harbour Board, Waste Aware Aberdeen, and the Torry Community Council.
Anne also enjoyed the performances on stage at the festival such as the marching band and AYMT.
The event was very well turned out and was complimented by warm sunshine and a blue sky!
Below is a picture of Dame Anne and Dawn Bellamy, who was from the community council, and they spoke about TCC’s consultation on the future of Victoria Road primary school.
The winner of Dame Anne’s Christmas Card Competition has been announced as Lucas Norwood from the Hamilton School. The competition was judged on Monday 19th November by Shelagh Swanson, Owner and Resident Artist at Oil and Glass in Torry.
With 1,000 entries from schools across Aberdeen South, it was very challenging for the judge to pick only one winner. Dame Anne said: “There were so many fantastic cards from school pupils across Aberdeen South and I appreciate the effort that they have put into their submissions this year. I am, therefore, delighted to be able to present everyone who entered with a certificate.”
Thanks also go to to Asda Bridge of Dee who have kindly displayed all the cards on the windows along the checkouts. If any of the pupils who submitted entries want to take their card away with them they are more than welcome to do so. Asda will also be hosting the prize giving for the winner and runner up.
Finally, thank you to all the local business who made donations towards the prizes for the winner and runner ups.
