20 Aug Burgesses of Trade of the Burgh of Aberdeen
On Wednesday August 19th 2015, the two new members of the Shoemakers Incorporation, Alastair Walker and Mark McCue were installed as Burgesses of Trade at a ceremony held during a full council meeting at the Aberdeens Towns House. Both Gentlemen were admitted as members of the Shoemakers Incorporation in April.
The Late Deacon Convener, David N Parkinson, standing in for Deacon Convener Sandy McKinnon, presented the applicant to the Provost and Council for admission as a Free Burgess of the Burgh of Aberdeen of his own Craft only.
Traditionally new members only had the right to vote at Trade meetings once they had been accepted as a Trade Burgess.
