Lilias Day 2018

LILIAS DAY - 2nd JUNE 2018

What a great honour again for the Society to be invited back to Lilias Day this year, and a great turn out from the Society. Knowing what it’s like to organise events the organisers must have been having a sleepless night looking at the weather forecast, but they didn’t need to worry as the storms stayed away and it turned out to be a beautiful day, I have the sun burn to prove it lol.

We arrived at 8.30am and managed to get our tent up and ready with our stall and weapons; then we headed down to start the March. It’s about 3 miles I would say and with floats and all the locals out to see the March it’s like the whole village gets involved which is wonderful to see and also be part of.

Once we got back to the tent, wee Charli Stewart merits a mention - she sold loads of key rings and books, and even a Wallace book to the the Tory stall beside us lol. After doing our talks on the Wars of Independence and our weapons display, it was time to head home and say goodbye to Lilias Day for another year, but we will be back next year, you can bet on it.

A big thank you to everyone who turned up from the Society, Charli Stewart, Irene Stewart, Cha Halliday, Mags Halliday, George Kempik, George Boyle, Gordon Aitken, Lesley Matthews, April Mathews and Lesley’s Mum and Dad
