Margaret Gray, Currently serves on the Royal Burgh of Inverbervie Community Council and is Leader with the 1st Inverbervie Cub Group, Margaret grew up in the Royal Burgh, went to school here and works in the Library on Church St, she has been married to Ian for 42 years and they have two Children.

Margaret’s family have had a long connection with Bervie and she is keenly interested in the history of the Burgh.

Margaret said “I feel that the area has been neglected a bit in the past and think the Community Council are working hard to bring back the revitalisation of the Royal Burgh, my favourite place is at the beach looking across the water towards Craig Davie and my favourite thing is the way we have evolved over the years since and before becoming a Royal Burgh”
