George Beverly


George was born and brought up in Rhynie into a Joiner/Farming enterprise family that was established before the turn of the last century. He left school at 15 and joined the family firm as an apprentice joiner eventually taking on the business with his brother in 1984 and more recently with his son Brian.

A close family unit, the 'Beverlys' are synonymous with Rhynie with the core of the family still living and working here, whether that is on the land or as craftspeople. George has been involved with Rhynie Gala from its inception, mainly as Vice Chair, but his involvement has meant the facilitation of on the day logistics. Also a member and past Vice Chair of Noth Community Council gives George the insight into the day to day running of the not seen elements of community life.

He is one of the drivers and founding member of Rhynie Charitable Trust. George has an easy going charm and manner and is underpinned by the efficiency of his wife Phyllis and his daughter Alison…

Mike Davies


Mike was born and brought up in the south-east of England, until going to university in London. After graduating he moved to Newcastle then took up employment in Zambia for three years. Since returning from there his employment as a geotechnical engineer in the construction industry has taken him to live in Linlithgow, Wendover, Lichfield and Ripon. Redundancy led to a move back to Scotland in 2004, settling in Rhynie in 2008.

Now firmly, and finally, settled in Rhynie with wife, Anny, 1 foster child, 1 dog, 1 cat, 8 chickens, 3 horses and 2 donkeys.

While working as a self-employed website designer, Mike has also been involved with the Huntly Business Association, serving as Secretary and Treasurer, and with the annual Huntly Hairst Festival. He has also spent some time as a group leader for long-distance horse trails, leading riders across Wales and Scotland. Now retired, he is free to concentrate more time on his mountain biking, being a foster carer and work around the home.
