2020 Common Riding

Message from Chairman, Ex-Cornet John Hogg

❝Can thae be the Kirk Bells ringin

Weel, aw cannae gaen the day

The Covid hes pit paid tae that

So oo’d better bide away

This year folks we’ve experienced a very different Common-Riding but nevertheless I think we have made the very most of it.  Whatever way you may have celebrated, I hope you all enjoyed yourselves and you’ve made good memories out of a challenging situation…❞
