Gala day fun
Burnside event a massive success
The community of Burnside was out in force on Saturday to enjoy the Burnside Community Council Gala Day.
Organised in aid of Burnside in Bloom, the day was a huge success despite persistent showers.
Former councillor Russell Clearie opened the event while local organisations contributed to an interesting variety of stalls.
Local traders were generous with their contributions for raffle prizes and to prizes for a local primary school art competition.
The overall winner of the art competition was Amelie Kumar of Burnside Primary. Individual winners were: Burnside Primary - Rachael Walsh, primary three
St Columbkille’s Primary - Mollie Monaghan, 5, primary one.
Calderwood Primary - Hasan Mohammad, 11.
A watercolour of old Burnside painted by resident Alastair Moodie was raffled off.
The visitors were entertained -despite some late call-offs - by Camglen Radio and Abba and Loxie, two girl vocalist groups.
As the afternoon ended the sunshine finally broke through.
