An exciting and fun afternoon with lots of drama and plenty of Boys, leaders, parents, grandparents and friends all getting involved.

Thank you to the 3 parents and one ‘big brother’ who acted as judges, Simon Porteous recording, and particularly Brian Nisbet and Pamela McKay who organised the races and the event.

8 Junior Sections with approximately 50 Boys (18 P6, 18 P5 and 14 P4) took part.
