Scanned here by Robert Stewart, from 45 year old deteriorating 35mm slides are two pictures of Blantyre Village Gala Day.
Taken in 1969 at David Livingstone Centre, this gala day had various guests of honour. Andrew Cruickshank, who played Dr. Cameron in ‘Dr. Finlay’s Casebook’, and Winnie Ewing MP were the special VIP guests and pictured also is the gala queen and attendants.
In 2015 Blantyre Community Committee hope to join forces with David Livingstone Centre to bring back a huge Summer Gala day to Blantyre, the logistics of which are to be discussed in the coming months.
