Sincere thanks for making sports awards such a success


I WOULD like to put on record my sincere thanks to a number of people who all played their part in making last Friday's Annandale and Eskdale sports awards in Langholm the success it was.

It goes without saying that we are hugely grateful to our sponsors who help make these events possible. I would like to thank all the staff, volunteers, caterers and management of the Buccleuch Centre for their help and support and for being so accommodating with this event which returned to Langholm for the first time in 13 years.

I talked about the importance of volunteers in sport and recognising their contribution many times during the evening so it would be hypocritical of me not to take the time to thank Chris McBain Photography, Bill Barbour, Dayne Massey, Glen Cavers and, in particular, Jamie Fletcher for all their efforts.

Finally, a huge thank you to every member of Langholm Pipe Band who made the evening special for a number of people, myself included.
