Charlie Abel Burgess

Dean of Guild, Colin Taylor welcomes Charlie Abel
Wow.
I was very honoured to be received as a Free Burgess and Guild Member of the City and Burgh of Aberdeen on the 15th of August 2015.  I’m told it’s the highest honour the city can bestow on a citizen so I’m really really humbled.  I look forward to being an active member of the Burgess and doing all I can to help the city I love dearly.
Don’t think I’ll be required to bear arms and shoot invaders from the city gates anymore… But I’ll do what I can with my trusty squeeze box and i look forward to driving my cattle or sheep down Union Street. 😉
