TOM GRANT, who retired recently from Mackay Boat Builders (Arbroath) Ltd. after 29 years as a painter, and his wife Cilla, were feted at a function in the Commercial Inn on Friday.
The couple received a gift of money to allow them to take a bus trip, one of their hobbies, and Tom also received two bottles of whisky. They were handed over by the directors of the company Harry Simpson and Duncan Crosbie.
Mrs Grant received a bouquet from Lynn Cameron.
The event also marked the 21st anniversary of Mr Simpson and Mr Crosbie taking over control of the company.
