Hamish Kirkpatrick: Chieftain

I am delighted to be continuing for another year as Chieftain of the Scots in Qatar. The previous year has been hard work but fun, and seeing everyone enjoying themselves as much as you do, makes it all worthwhile!!!

Another year older, another year wiser - and certainly another year greyer, my main aim this year is to continue to promote the Scots in Qatar and all things Scottish, and to ensure that our three main events continue to go from strength to strength. I look forward to working with the new Committee and will ensure that we continue to listen to your comments and strive to improve and safe-guard the delivery of our events, to maintain the high standards set so far, without becoming complacent.

In addition, we shall develop the successful ‘satellite’ events that we began in 2015 and hopefully later this year a new event will take place; watch this space!

My family and I have now been in Doha for almost 6 - years having moved direct from North Berwick. It’s certainly a different place to when we arrived, but we’re still enjoying ourselves.

It’s thanks to you and your guests that we all have so much fun; I look forward to your continued support of the Society and hopefully we’ll catch-up at the next event, if not sooner!
