IT WAS fun and games for villagers in Ecclesmachan and Three- miletown on Saturday for their gala day.

Despite a chilly wind, around 80 people turned out to follow piper Tommy Nimmo as he lead everyone from Ecclesmachan Village Hall on the 50 yard walk to the gala field.

There were lots of races for the children and adults to try their best in, including the obstacle race, running races, the mums and dads race, a skipping race, a sack race, a tug of war, and competition was fierce in the egg and spoon, before everyone stopped for tea in Diamond Jubilee mugs, and ice cream.

Helene McKinneil, secretary of the gala day committee, said: “Everyone enjoyed the day and it was great fun!”
