Walking towards a great gala day for all

By Bryan

A group of councillors joined around 50 Bonnybridge residents on Saturday for a walk to raise funds for the local gala day.

Provost Pat Reid, with councillors Linda Gow, Dennis Goldie and Adrian Mahoney set off from the Kelpies at 9am last Saturday heading to Bonnybridge.

Among those taking part were members of the Monday Youth Club in Bonnybridge Community Centre and youths from Rock The Talk Bonnybridge who completed the walk in their onesies.

The quickest walker managed the route in one hour 45 minutes.

Bryan Deakin, treasurer of Bonnybridge Gala Day, said “We would like to thank everyone who did the walk on Saturday, a big thank you to Cllr Buchanan for organising the walk, to the councillors who walked with us and to everyone that sponsored our walkers. All sponsorship forms should be handed into myself or Bonnybridge Community Centre by May 14.”

Emily Cowan, secretary of the committee, also thanked the many organisations and businesses that had supported the walk.
