Anna Tomlinson, right, performs the opening ceremony in respect of new handrails at Darnicks Smith Memorial Hall. The wrought iron project was financed by using part of a bequest from Annas sister and fellow villager, Jean Anderson, who died in February. Jean served as a hall trustee for many years, as well as being president of the local SWI and organising various events, such as whist drives etc., in the hall. Trustees agreed to dedicate the hand rails to Jeans memory by inserting her initials, JA, into them. Also in the photograph are, from left, Derrick Brydon, Elspeth Gill, Jim Gill, Wendy Grant and Margaret Aitken.
