Gordon MP Richard Thomson has attended the re-opening of Leith Hall, the historic National Trust for Scotland property near Kennethmont.
Working with NTS, Mr Thomson supported local efforts to secure the re-opening of Leith Hall after it was closed due to the pandemic, and the related work of local organisers who stepped-in to maintain the property during the closure. The MP was also active in encouraging NTS to re-open Pitmedden Gardens when Scottish Government funding and a relaxation of lockdown measures applied.
Commenting after his visit, Richard Thomson MP said:
“Leith Hall is a tremendous asset to the National Trust for Scotland and a hugely popular tourist attraction.
“I’m delighted that the property is once again open to the public, particularly so now that we are – hopefully – emerging from the worst of the pandemic and working our way back to a new normality.
“The staff at the NTS and the volunteers who give so freely of their time deserve our thanks for the work they do so that we may continue to enjoy Leith Hall and its grounds for many years to come.”
