The Foulis Medal - 6th July 2007

Our President, Douglas Foulis, had generously donated a magnificent medal for competition at Leith Links for Leith organisations.

The first running of this event saw 4 local churches taking part. The winners were South Leith Parish Church, represented by Alastair Chalmers and Hugh Blackie, with a score of 39 over 10 holes, followed by Brian and Joan Graham of Duke Street URC.

Also taking part were Leith St Andrews (Norman Kinnear and Duncan Scotland) and North Leith (Gary Macdonald and Iain May).

The recent wet weather did not dampen the spirits and a most enjoyable evening resulted.

Now that the event has been established we hope the wider Leith community can be encouraged to take part to make the event most worthy of Douglas's generosity.
