We are sorry to announce that David Urquhart, a former director of Forres Events Ltd, who was recently made its honorary Lifetime President in recognition of his contribution to the company,  died on 30 November. David was a key member of the team that brought Piping At Forres, the  European Pipe Band Championships, to the town and his creative talent and enthusiasm were vital factors in the development of the event that attracts thousands of visitors to Moray.
Ian Widdowson of Forres Events Ltd said “I have known David for at least ten years now as a personal friend as well as colleague at Forres Events Ltd. David was a tower of strength to the members of the Forres Events team. That team and the Royal Scottish Pipe Band Association will miss his enthusiasm and work ethic and I will miss his very good company.’
