There was also Highland dancing, Stevens Funfair, side stalls, haggis burgers and representatives from new restaurant RBW.

There was also live music in the Cardigan Arms, Ex-Service Men’s Club, Village Inn and White Hart.

Chieftan for the day was Jimmy Noble, who was a councillor for more than a quarter of a century until he stood down in May.
