50 YEARS AGO Flam­beaux Pa­rade in fancy dress is suc­cess

Strathearn Herald - - MEMORY LANE -

Com­rie’s an­nual Flam­beaux Pa­rade at­tracted a larger num­ber of en­trants in fancy dress cos­tume than there has been for some time, and was wit­nessed by a great num­ber of peo­ple, who gath­ered in the Square at mid­night.

Af­ter the pipers had led them on their tra­di­tional march through the vil­lage, the Flam­beaux were filed on the ground and the pa­rade was judged in this light by Messrs A Carmichael, T Gow and W McDougall.

Prizewin­ners were as fol­lows: In­di­vid­u­als - 1 Dr What, J El­liot; 2 Miss World, G Inglis; 3 Foot and Mouth, G Mills. Pairs - 1 Bat­tery Hens, J Bell and S Hendry; 2 The Ter­ri­ble Twins, J Cr­erar and G Connell; 3 Bon­nie and Clyde, Misses F Spring and E Ste­wart. Groups - 1 Flam­beaux Bingo Club, The McEwen’s Group; 2 Char­lie’s 1968, the Richards Girls; 3 Loch Ness Mon­ster, G Dick’s Group; 4 Hog­manay Party, C McPherson’s Group.

Spe­cial prizes: 1 Fa­ther Time, D Gil­lies; 2 Flower Girl, Mrs G Findlay; Go­rilla, Mr I Oates.

Cri­eff Hy­dro of­fi­cially opened its brand new squash courts, when Mr JR Don­ald­son, chair­man of the com­pany un­veiled a plaque mark­ing the oc­ca­sion. This is but one of the things the Hy­dro is do­ing to mark its cen­te­nary. Al­ready sev­eral lo­cal peo­ple have ex­pressed an in­ter­est in play­ing squash at the Hy­dro courts and the man­age­ment hope to start a club for lo­cal peo­ple who could share these new fa­cil­i­ties with guests. It will cost 3/- for a half hour ses­sion, con­trolled by a time switch on the lights.
