It seemed as if anybody who was anybody was in Barr Village for its recent Gala Day.
Look hard enough and you might have spotted Sean Connery, Judy Murray, Nicola Benedetti, Rob Roy, Oor Wullie, Robert Louis Stevenson, Arthur Conan Doyle and Mary Queen of Scots - to name but a few.
For the theme of this year’s Gala Day, held in sunshine throughout, was “Scottish Heroes” and the Primary School in particular did a great job of bringing the past to life with a tremendous portrayal of great Scots past and present.
The day kicked off with the traditional race over Auchensoul Fell for all ages before the Maybole Pipe Band led the parade to the crowning of the Gala Queen and the afternoon’s entertainment including Fabulous Fraser’s magical antics, Bunny Love’s petting corner, various stalls, Mystic tarot, dippy ducks, the Pet show at the Pot, teas and bowler’s burgers all made a fab fun day!
Well done to the army of volunteers who worked so hard to make the Gala a great success.
