Lunch was truly sparkling
Published at 21:36, Wednesday, 06 June 2012
DESPITE the somewhat chilly weather, we were delighted to see so many people at the big diamond jubilee lunch.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the activities organised by the Scouts and the Xcel project and the rugby ground was such a safe place for them to run around in.
Our very grateful thanks go to the committee for allowing the picnic to take place there.
A huge vote of thanks to Langholm Sings, the newly-formed choir who sang beautifully, the pipe band and town band who, as usual, delighted the crowd with their excellent playing and the day centre for organising the Tai Chi demonstration.
Our thanks to David Stevenson for his well-spoken tribute to our Queen, to the Rev Scott McCarthy for his prayer and to Kenneth Pool for his fantastic effort in announcing the programme of events and for sourcing everything which was needed to make the afternoon run smoothly.
We must also thank councillor Archie Dryburgh and the two other first aiders Ian Murray and Janice Horan from Dumfries who came along to make sure we could all be treated if any accidents happened.
Thanks to everyone who helped in any way to make this such an enjoyable event.
Margaret Sanderson, chairman, and Ronnie Tait, vice-chairman
Langholm, Ewes and Westerkirk community council
