This event is being held in aid of St Andrew’s Hospice and donations of home baking would be greatly appreciated. All welcome. Peggy Burton On Saturday morning the funeral of Peggy Burton took place in St John’s Church. Peggy was a well known lady with many attending the service. The mourners included members of Castlehill Bowling Club where Peggy was at one time lady president and her skill at the game won her many titles including the club’s Ladies Championship. Her dedication to the ladies section and to the club was always appreciated over the years and it is at this sad time the memories and sad wishes must go to her beloved family. After the service Peggy was laid to rest at the Carluke Wilton Cemetery.
