Last night was the farewell party to Bruce who has just given up being Provost of L’gow. Friends gathered from as far as North Berwick to eat, drink, be merry (and sad) and sing as many laments as could be found.
Bruce did a great job as Provost and threw himself into it with gusto: visiting schools; several trips to our twin town Gyancourt; and added much merriment to Marches Day and all his other civic duties. I’m sure he will miss it but will be glad to have his diary back once more for other things.
Bruce loves Linlithgow and it shows in his commitment to the community. I love it too and will be sorry to leave.
