At the Annual General Meeting of the Incorporation of Hammermen, Baillie Andrew McEwan was elected as New Deacon. He thanked the Old Deacon Stuart Campbell for his invaluable contribution to both the revival of the Hammermen (now with 26 members) and also re- igniting the interest in the other six trades. He also thanked Stuart for the many projects he had instigated during his term.
