LANGHOLM’S senior citizens have been enjoying the company of Cornet Henry Jeffrey and his right and left-hand men Iain Little and Stuart Murray as they carry out their duties.
Over the past week they have visited the patients at Thomas Hope Hospital, the residents of Greenbank Court and the members at Langholm Day Centre.
At the hospital they were treated to drinks and snacks and sang A Wee Bit Toon for the staff and patients.
Last Sunday they spent a pleasant hour talking about the traditions of the Common Riding with the elderly living at Greenbank Court.
A dining hall bedecked with pink decorations greeted the principals when they arrived for a sumptuous buffet lunch at the day centre.
They were joined by jubilee Cornet Billy Laidlaw, Christine Ewart and Liz Ewart, the widow and mother of semi-jubilee Cornet Ian Ewart.
The proceedings were led by Michael Bell, who welcomed the Cornet on behalf of the members, and Grace was given by the Rev Scott McCarthy.
After a delicious lunch, there was a variety of entertainment centred on the Common Riding.
