No people so few in number, have scored so deep a mark in world’s history as the Scots have done.

– Victorian historian James Anthony Froude

The Hong Kong St. Andrew’s Society dates back to 1881, to the early years of Hong Kong as a British colony and the list of previous Chieftains includes many of the great characters that have made Hong Kong what it is today. Our Milestone moments bring the rich past of this community and the city itself, to life.

While Hong Kong is our home, for the long or short term, the Society allows members to come together to celebrate a common affinity with Scotland, our culture and our heritage.

Today, the following office bearers have been entrusted with running the Society, and meet at least every two months (except for the summer):

Mr Scott Semple


Ms Fiona Cheng

Vice Chieftain

Mr Robbie McRobbie


Mr Andrew Weir


General Committee

Dr Lindsay Porter

Ms Wendy Cramond

Mr Adrian Mowat

Mr Rob Shorthouse

Ms Kate Wyllie

Mr Calum Murray

Mr Oliver Li

Ms Patricia Byott

Ms Lesley Cameron

Mr David Batchelor

Honorary Auditor

Mr Ryan Swann [Baker Tilly HK Ltd]
