The past few years have been remarkable for both Abercorn and Mary Fairbairn.

The BBC produced an in-depth documentary focusing on Mary and her achievements, also Mary held the post as President of the National Association of Memorial Masons for four years (2001-2005) — all of this at the same time as being President of the Scottish Region of N.A.M.M.

Her businesses were rewarded too, with Mary being presented with a crystal trophy to mark winning the Best Small Business in the Scottish Region of the Federation of Small Businesses. The trophy was presented at a gala dinner in Claridge's Hotel in London, by Sir Steven Redgrave.
