Supper Room Renamed Boyd Room after Linda Boyd late secretary of Fishermen's Hall
Linda Boyd, who sadly passed away last year, was one of the original team who formed the Fishermen's Hall Trust (FHT) where she served as the secretary for the group.
Formed in 2018, they went on to successfully steer the hall from a closure-threatened council facility to a thriving, community owned asset via Community Asset Transfer (CAT) process.
To honour her efforts, the former supper room, which has been comprehensively revamped, has been renamed the Linda Boyd Room.
Unveiling a commemorative plaque last Monday afternoon were Mrs Boyd's daughter, Ruth Watt, and FHT chairman Gifford Leslie.
An afternoon tea was also held with an invitation extended to trustees past and present to drop in and enjoy a cuppa and a chat.
Speaking afterwards, Mr Leslie said: "We wanted to do something to celebrate successfully and we thought it would be good to have all our trustees and ex-trustees along.
"We were all like a big jigsaw when we came together to get the CAT through, all of us formed a piece of it. Sadly, a piece of that jigsaw is missing now that Linda Boyd has passed away.
"Linda was a huge part of the team that made the CAT possible, she was a very hard worker and we thought it would be a nice idea to rename the former Supper Room in her memory and to have Ruth help unveil it.
"It was a very emotional moment for us."
Buckie’s Fishermen’s Hall approved for Community Asset Transfer
The Fishermen’s Hall Trust was established in 2018 to prepare a request to take the Hall, which was built in 1886 for and by the fishing community, into community ownership.
Chair of Moray Council’s Corporate Committee, Cllr Aaron McLean, said: “This has been a long process for the Trust, owing to covid pandemic related delays, so I’m delighted for the community that this transfer has been approved.
“I wish the Trust and the wider Buckie community the very best for the future of the Fishermen’s Hall and look forward to seeing it flourish.”
