 Thanks to those that can come along, to the others there will always be next years one but hopefully will see you sometime during the year.

I was looking back for previous years photos and realised that we didn't have a lot of them so this year one of of our committee has been tasked with taking photos of the actual march and at the river.

As was said previously Glen Garioch are happy to support the Blessing of the River.

If any of you want to add a few words at the riverbank you will be very welcome.

The Rev Graeme Longmuir will say the blessing, Stuart Watson will be reciting a poem or story and the Provost Jill Webster is also to add a few words.

See you tomorrow,
Brian

Good turnout this morning, coffee went down well and it was great to meet up with everybody :z16

I didn't take my camera this year as others were going to cover the event, so I hope everybody forwards copies to me :wink

Best wishes

Sorry I couldn't be there today but I thought it would be better if I kept my germs to myself. I should be out of self imposed quarantine soon.

Tight lines everyone :z18

I did not get many decent photo's I'm afraid. It was nice to meet some folk I had not seen for a while and have a blether.

I really enjoyed that this morning! My first time attending one of those. Those that were there will know there was a brown trout of about 1.5lbs landed, well after a fruitless hour at Kemnay I went to join Jimbo and Paul at Lochter and the guy in the hut had heard all about it but now it was 6lbs!!! :z4
If you get really stuck for photos Mike I got a few of backs of heads and one of some dog poo?
