Royal representative, Lord Hodge, visited Crieff Hydro Hotel, where he met with representatives from a number of Perthshire organisations.
Lord Hodge, the Lord High Commissioner who grew up in Perthshire and had some fond memories of his time spent at Crieff Hydro during family breaks, was welcomed by Stephen Leckie, Lord-Lieutenant of Perth and Kinross.
Lord Hodge attended a reception at the hotel where he had the opportunity to hear more about the work of several local groups. The groups included community reuse charity Remake Crieff, Christians Against Poverty, Letham4all, Riding for the Disabled, Scottish Prison Services, Messy Church Comrie and Appletree Community.
Stephen Leckie, Chairman and CEO of Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels, said: “There are so many fantastic groups and charities in Perthshire which aim to support our local communities.
“It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to host this meeting during which Lord Hodge had the opportunity to meet the people behind some of these organisations and hear about the amazing work they do first-hand.”
Lord Hodge is Deputy President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom and was appointed to represent The Queen as Lord High Commissioner to the Church of Scotland’s 2022 General Assembly.
