In memory of the late Clerk to the Deacon Ken Johnston, it was agreed that an annual trophy and medal be presented to Allan’s Primary which was traditionally the Trades School. This trophy would be presented to pupils of their choice.
Deacon Andy McEwan presented the Quaich and medal to the school in late 2021. This is to be an annual event.
The power to grant incorporated status to trades rested with the magistrates of royal burghs. An incorporated trade was granted the right to monopolise and control their trade within the burgh. Trade Incorporations were usually constituted by a seal of cause granted by the magistrates but some were constituted by use and consuetude. A strict monopoly was enforced within the burgh and non-members of an incorporation were not allowed to trade within the bounds of the town.
