  1. What a splendid turnout it was! A great community spirited event…and of course the weather helped. What a shame there wasn’t the same support and turnout for Hermitage School’s 25th.

    1. Yes it was a good turnout and it would be nice if every community event was as successful. But then the planning for Shindig 2015 is probably starting tomorrow. And of course corporate sponsorship is a big help. And very efficient leaflet drops. And tireless staff…
