Pitlochry – Sunshine On Leith

On 29th June, 54 Association members went by coach to Pitlochry theatre to see the production of Sunshine On Leith. This was our first central event since COVID.

It was a great show, bringing back happy memories of the Proclaimers music, with excellent performances by all the cast and there was a well deserved standing ovation at the end.

The weather was not perfect but spirits were not dampened!

Bob Jackson’s delayed 90th birthday celebrations.

On 9th June ex International Division colleagues of committee member Bob plus BOSPA Ex Treasurer David Wilson’s widow gathered together at Buchanan Castle golf club Drymen to celebrate Bob’s 90th birthday, delayed by two years due to COVID.

They were Gordon Deas, Bill Truswell, Susanne Wilson, Janette Buchanan, George Crawford, Eddie McPhee and of course the birthday boy himself.

All, apart from Gordon and Janette, played a round of golf and Bob, at 92, still managed a very creditable 12 holes.

Former Committee Members R.I.P.

It is with great regret that we have to advise that our former treasurer David Wilson [DAG] has passed away. David assiduously kept our accounts for many years and was a great asset to the Association.

We also lost our former membership secretary Edith McWatt in May this year. Edith was a longstanding committee member who kept our records in an exemplary manner up to where we had to stop this because of the Data Protection Act.

Our condolences go to both of their families.
