Living in Arbroath

“Living in Arbroath”
On the 30th of July, we shared some photographs of young Murray Fullerton who had been a wee holiday in England and had posed for photographs outside of RAF Scampton, home of the RAF Red Arrows.
This post was seen by Gill Howie of Squadron Prints in Arbroath.
Many of you will know Gill for her amazing photographs of wildlife but for the stunning images of the planes and helicopters which often visit the RM Condor base as well as having a huge fan base on social media for their company which specialises in high quality aviation prints and so much more – https://www.squadronprints.com/
Gill reached out and and very kindly offered Murray some Red Arrows merchandise, but not only that, she reached out to the Manager of the Red Arrows who is a personal friend and they sent some more goodies up for Murray!
This was such a kind gesture and we have been really touched by Gill’s generosity.
Below is Gill’s story that she has shared
“I love seeing how Arbroath Folk promote and protect our town, none more than the current Arbroath FC team, supporters and those behind the scenes who help every football fanatic enjoy the game.
I don’t really follow football but recently I enjoyed viewing photos where the many young fans proudly show off their Arbroath FC shirts at various landmarks all around the world.
One post that struck a cord with me was of a young enthusiastic Red Lichties supporter standing outside RAF Scampton, the home of The Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team, The Red Arrows.
My husband and I run a company here in the town which supplies various items to the Military, including The Red Arrows, so I sent the photo to The Team Manager who is a personal friend.
This afternoon I finally tracked down the young man and was able to present him with a goodie bag of Red Arrows items from Squadron Prints Ltd and the Team themselves.
It was lovely to meet such a pleasurable young man so passionate about his football and the Red Arrows.
Keep up the good work Arbroath FC – it’s great to see the juniors in the town flourishing because of the care and attention of our local football team.”
