Former Peterhead Councillor Honoured by First Minister

>> 2 November 2017

Former Peterhead South & Cruden councillor Stuart Pratt has been honoured by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon for his service to the community and the Scottish National Party.

Stuart served as a councillor representing Meethill-Glendaveny on the former Banff & Buchan District Council from 1988 to 1996 and as an Aberdeenshire councillor from 1995 to 2017 representing Dales-Towerhill and, following boundary changes, Peterhead South & Cruden.

Away from the council and politics, Stuart has also served as an Elder in his local kirk since 1981 and as Session Clerk since 2001. He is a strong supporter of the Boys Brigade having served as an Officer since 1979 and Company Captain since 1999.

Stuart was honoured at a ceremony at the recent SNP Conference in Glasgow where First Minister Nicola Sturgeon presented him with a lapel badge specially created by the renown Sheila Fleet Jewellers of Orkney.

Commenting, Stuart said:

“This was entirely unexpected and I was quite surprised to receive the invitation but it’s nice to be recognised in this way.

“I thoroughly enjoyed my time working as a local councillor, working alongside various community groups and assisting individuals where I could. I’ve been kept busy since May and it’s amazing just how busy retirement can be.”
