Jim Evans has become the new Lord President of the Court of Deans of Scotland. Mr Evans attended the organisations’s AGM in St. John’s Kirk in Perth recently, and at the banquet that followed the office of Lord President of the Court of Deans of Scotland was passed from Alistair Anderson of Perth to Jim Evans of Berwick.
The Court of Deans of Scotland is an organisation of the ancient Royal Burghs of Scotland. Berwick has traditionally been included as it was one of the original Royal Burghs. The AGM is held in the home base of the Lord President.
Next year it will take place in Berwick, on May 22, when it will become part of Berwick’s year-long 900th anniversary celebrations.
