St. PATRICKS DAY PARADE 2017
St. Patrick’s Day Parade, 2017
Having just completed an eight week “Fit Town Programme” we felt we well fit and ready for our annual walk around town in this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
However, the extremely bad weather conditions on the day quickly dampened our enthusiasm, After a hesitant start, we decided to brave the elements. As the rain poured down, 32 brave warriors in our group donned the hats, boots and rain gear. Adorned with green sashes , we bravely joined the parade and were enthusiastically cheered on by a somewhat smaller number of spectators.
Having done our bit for our Patron Saint and for our community, we dragged our drenched bodies up the stairs in Gullane’s for a more than welcome bowl of lovely hot soup and tea/coffee
I believe there were some who availed of hot toddies!
Well deserved, I say !!!!
