New Year’s honours presented to Mrs Ann Holt

This week one of our founding members and dedicated secretary-treasurer and driving force, Mrs Ann Holt attended a ceremony in Dumfries and met with the Lord Lieutenant for Dumfries, Fiona Armstrong, and Deputy Lord Lieutenant Gordon Dickie.  She was presented her British Empire Medal (BEM) awarded in the New Year’s Honours, at the council’s municipal chambers on Wednesday, 15 December 2021.  This was for three decades of raising awareness of our poet.
