War memorial ceremony
Updated: Oct 15, 2021
The 100th anniversary of the unveiling of the Aberlour war memorial was marked in a recent ceremony. Wreaths were laid by the Lord Lieutenant of Banffshire, Andrew Simpson, and Kath Davies of St Margaret's Church. The names of those who died in the 1st World War and are commemorated on the Aberlour memorial, and that of the Aberlour Orphanage, were written on crosses which were planted by members of the public who attended the ceremony. The event was organised by Lieutenant General Sir Alistair Irwin and Reverend Andrew Kimmitt, Minister of Aberlour Parish Church.
The weather was warm and sunny and about 100 people attended the event in the village square.
