THIS week the clock’s turned back to 1954, when the Winchburgh Country Dancers’ children class won a trophy at the Edinburgh Festival.

Our thanks to Linlithgow’s Margaret Masterton (nee Malcolm) for sending in the photo.

She thinks the award was for the clans competition, with the young dancers representing the Hay clan of Aberdeen.
