Many thanks to all who made Friday’s lunch and enjoyable success, including those who attended, who generously donated catering, stall goods and raffles, who prepared and served food, and most of all Laurieston School Choir, who delighted all present with their enthusiastic singing led by Miss Calderwood. We wish the P7 pupils good luck in their senior school. As a result the sum of £500 plus helps the upkeep of the hall, but most of all the mix of young and old members of the village is to be commended.
