Holly Victoria Jamieson was baptised in  Oban Parish Church on Sunday April 3.

Pictured with her great16baptism1not grandfather Allan Munro. Both she and he were baptised, 90 years apart, in the same christening gown. Indeed the gown is 200 years old and has been used for baptisms throughout that time in this area.

Mum Vanessa hopes that someday wee Holly will have her children baptised in this gown too.
