Fog­watt Hall stal­warts call it a day af­ter com­bined 130 years’ ser­vice to com­mu­nity

The Press and Journal (Moray) - - NEWS -

Two broth­ers who have tire­lessly sup­ported their vil­lage hall have re­tired – af­ter 130 years of com­bined ser­vice. Peter and Archie Mitchell have played an in­te­gral part in Fog­watt Hall, each play­ing dif­fer­ent roles over the years.

Peter served as chair­man for 17 years be­fore step­ping down in 1997, while farmer Archie, who joined the com­mit­tee in 1948, helped or­gan­ise events such as the an­nual Burns sup­per – for which he also supplied the neeps and tat­ties.

To mark their con­tri­bu­tion, the cur­rent mem­bers of the Fog­watt Hall Com­mit­tee de­cided to place two benches out­side which have been ded­i­cated to them.

They were also pre­sented with a bot­tle of whisky each.
