The unveiling (on the 2nd June) of the village hall’s commemorative light for Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee was a wonderful occasion. The Duke of Buccleuch did the honours impressively, and then we repaired into the main hall to enjoy an excellent buffet, prepared by Allan Drummond along with several members of the hall’s management committee. For a full account see

The photo here is of Mike Fox, who made the light, the Duke of Buccleuch, and Douglas Oliver, the Hall Management Committee’s chairperson. The strange object on the bottom left is a microphone – the event having been filmed by ITV Border. For even more pictures (taken mainly by Allan Drummond) see  (scroll down to the end)
