Elisabeth Chapman 100th
By Cllr Anne Simpson
|Just back from my first 100th birthday presentation on behalf of Aberdeenshire Council of a card and flowers to Elizabeth ( Betty ) Chapman at her daughter's house just outside Strichen. The Lord Lieutenant Sandy Manson was also present passing on
congratulations from the Queen.
Thanks to the Chapman family who made me so welcome. It was great to see Betty again and reminisce together. She is one of the original Mintlaw Ramblers from when I set up the group in 1990. And a pleasure to listen to her son Peter's rendition of some Doric songs and poems!
