The effort that people put into arches at Linlithgow Gala Day is impressive, and this year was no exception.
Local lad Alistair Oag was a Guard at this year’s Gala, and was inspired by his favourite TV show, the Big Bang Theory, and used materials donated from the local dump to make a fantastic arch at his home at Avalon Gardens.
Mum Rhona Oag said: “What I would like is for people to think about recycling more throughout the year. The Gala day can cost hundreds if not thousands of pounds. Everything apart from the Mannequins was collected from the Linlithgow Recycling Centre, a broken telescope, hi-fi, laptop, books and bookcases, old suitcases, you name it.”
Alistair came third in the Arches competition.
