The Mercat Cross in Edinburgh

The Lord Lyon King of Arms, accompanied by the Lord Provost of Edinburgh, the Lord Justice Clerk and the Officers of Arms, with Balaklava Company and the Band of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, witnessed the rededication by the Minister of St Giles of the refurbished Mercat Cross of Edinburgh.

Also in attendance were the Deacon Convenor of the Incorporated Trades of Edinburgh, our member Ian Robertson, who led a party of Edinburgh burgesses including HSS Chairman, Beverly Bergman, who wore her chain of office. The HSS is making a contribution towards the cost of the renovation.
