Gala day brings village together

The 2015 Torphichen Gala Day dawned dry although there was a ‘nip in the air’ said Jennifer Dunsmore, chairwoman of the gala day committee.

As is the tradition in the village the 2015 queen, Aoife Sutton, was crowned by 2009 Queen Briaghe McKenzie.

Ably assisted by her champion, Fraser Holman, new Queen Aoife regally presided over the gala day and all involved from fairies to page boys presented a stunning picture.

The day’s events included music provided by Neilands Brass Band and Whitburn Flute Band and concluded with races run in the park.

The committee would like to thank everyone who helped out on the day and all of those who helped with the fundraising for this year’s event with bingo nights and quiz nights as well as a roller disco for the youngsters.
