The rain cleared, the sun shone, the crowds came, the bands played, prizes were won, bargains were found at the car boots, Mickey Mouse even led a conga – everyone had a great day.
This was the Family Fun Day run by the Rotary Club of Galashiels and District.
Live bands Easter Street, Becca McCue and 3D kept everyone entertained, while Rotary, Inner Wheel and other local charities held tombola and other stalls, as well as letting people know about their work.
TD1 Radio broadcast during the day, playing music and requests.
Club member Tricia Patterson was the driving force behind the event. She was delighted by the turnout and thanked all those who had donated time and effort to make the day a success. These included Fahrenheit Function Band who donated their PA, with assistance throughout the day from band members Alistair and Pete, Jim at Hislops of Kelso for the curtain-sided trailer free of charge, and Mike from Speedys for the generator.
