The funeral service for a well-loved Aberdeen figure is to be held next week.
Family and friends of former Aberdeen Lord Provost James Wyness, who died on Saturday aged 85, are invited to pay their respects at the service at Wm Gilchrist Kaimhill Chapel, on Kaimhill Road on July 12 at 4pm.
Donations may be given in lieu of flowers, which will be provided by the family, to Ward 105.
Mr Wyness CBE worked as a shipyard electrician but had to give this up after suffering injuries when he fell from a mast.
He graduated from Aberdeen University in the early 1970s and became a history teacher.
Mr Wyness worked as a teacher at Hazlehead Academy until his retirement in 1995.
He was the Lord Provost when Mikhail Gorbachev, the former president of the Soviet Union, received the Freedom of Aberdeen on December 6 1993.
In a statement, the current Lord Provost of Aberdeen Barney Crockett said: “Jim was a wonderful person, who was dedicated to his family and the city of Aberdeen.”
