The Lord-Lieutenant of Aberdeen Barney Crockett unveiled two new deputy lieutenants at a special ceremony in the Town House.
Graham Guyan and Gillian Milne have been appointed because of “their unwavering dedication and support to various charitable and third sector organisations”.
A Lord Lieutenant is the British monarch’s personal representative for a specific area of the UK.
The Lord Provosts of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow are, by virtue of that office, also the Lord Lieutenant of their respective cities.
Mr Guyan is the patron of the North East of Scotland Gurkha Association, the Animal War Memorial in Scotland and of Aberdeen Football Club Heritage Trust
Ms Milne, meanwhile, is an active committee member of the Fisherman’s Mission in Aberdeen and recently volunteered to organise its 20th Praise Evening, which proved extremely popular.
Mr Crockett said: “They are both tireless in their commitment to so many charitable causes in the city.
“I am also aware that both are dedicated to their faith and help support, mentor and offer friendship and kindness to all that they meet.
“It is these qualities that will ensure that Gillian and Graham will be first-rate deputy lieutenants for Aberdeen.”
Ms Milne said: “This is such an honour for me and completely unexpected.
“As an honorary Aberdonian, hailing originally from Fife, I am humbled by the recognition of the work I do and look forward to serving the Crown and the people of this great city.”
Mr Guyan said: “I am truly humbled by being appointed to the role of deputy lieutenant for my home City of Aberdeen.
“I am committed to enhancing the lives of those who need assistance and being a deputy lieutenant will afford me the opportunity to provide further support to communities across the city.”
