“The choir was ably supported by our own Sammy the Scurry and their singing together with the very talented Isla McCall provided everyone with excellent entertainment.

“The meal was very kindly provided and cooked by Club Director Harry Fraser with support from the SPFL Trust.

“Very generous local businessmen together with Strachans, Neishies, Hame Bakery, Asda and Morrisons all chipped in to provide all attendees together with several who couldn’t make it along on the day due to illness with a lovely hamper as a gift - a real community effort supported by the SPFL Trust and my sincere thanks to one and all.”
