Adults also have an extra reason for going to the library. Its new Zinio service provides digital access to 60 popular and recreational magazines - and it's absolutely free! Pop along to the library in the community centre for more details.
GALA: Well done to all those who organised this year’s Gala. The usual suspects were this time joined by additional personnel: which augurs well for next year. It may not have been the best day weather-wise, but its principal personnel, the youngsters of the village, as usual enjoyed themselves thoroughly, though other villagers also took pleasure in the Parade and its pipers. It’s an event such as the Gala that lies at the heart of restoring a sense of community to our area.
NEW VIEWFINDER: Well done also to John Brittan, for restoring (with help in the physical setting it up from Douglas Campbell) the previously vandalised Viewfinder on the Free Green on the Commondry. The plate represents and names the mountains visible to the north and north-west, from where it sits, in front of the field bordered by the back gardens of the houses of Touch and Quarry Roads
