Prince Richard, the Duke of Gloucester, was in Fraserburgh to learn more about projects to bring more life to the city.

He visited the Scottish Lighthouse Museum, where he also learned more about the impact Storm Arwen has had on the area. One of his main tasks of the day was to present the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QARS) to the Invercairn Gala Committee.

Vice President McRobbie said: “We are very honoured to receive the award. It’s always good to be recognized, and to receive the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is the highest honour for an organization like us, so we’re pretty humbled.”

Director of the Fraserburgh Heritage Center Reid added: “I am delighted that it took the Duke so long to look at the photographs and understand what we have lost. It will take a huge community effort if we get a roof.”

After visiting the city centre, the Duke went to the port, where he visited the Moray East Project – Ocean Winds control center.
