The organizing committee of this years Kirk carnival would like to say
a great big thank you to all who helped in any way, no matter how
small, with Houston & Killellan kirk's successful carnival on Saturday
10th May.
Without the smallest cog the machine wouldn't function, so thank's to
everyone for their efforts.

Special thanks are due to our carnival queen Louise Boyd, her
attendants Courtney McHarg & Joelle Gribben, last years queen Abbie
Divers & our special guest Mrs Myra Hamilton, who's presence and
contributions added a touch of glamour and sophistication to the day's

We benefitted in no small this year from what was surely a minor
miracle weather wise, (all that praying certainly seemed to have
worked) having a good turn out of generous supporters, enabling us to
raise approx £11,039. Absolutely superb, what else can we say?

Photographs of a happy & successful carnival day can be seen on the
Kirk web site & Facebook page.
