Big Bannock is here again
The Big Bannock at North Roe has once again been judged a real success, with blue skies, sunshine and just a pirr o’ wind to keep the midges away.
The event has been a big draw for many ever since it started in 1999, since when it has provided its followers with healthy dollops of good-natured merriment and local entertainment.
But there is a serious side to the event, which raises money for cancer research and local charities.
In more than a decade, well over £100,000 has been raised and from the number of donations flowing into the charity kist again this year, organisers say charitable organisations are set to gain great benefit from the community-spirited event.
