At least three local residents have been honoured in today's announcement of the New Years Honours List. 'Tracker', (Tom Attenburgh), known to thousands of Scouts and cubs and their families through his work with the Scouting movement; George Kerr, for his work with judo, currently with the Junior Judo Club in West Bowling Street; and Stephen Blackmore, Keeper of the Botanics.
Different areas of contribution to society - but all richly deserving the recognition they have received. (And if I have missed any other North & Leith residents who have been honoured today as well, my apologies!).
