Platinum Jubilee celebrations organised by Kilninver and Kilmelford Community Council attracted a crowd of around 200 people and raised
£500 in aid of Scotland’s Charity Air Ambulance (SCAA) and Ukraine Relief.

Sack races for children were just some of the fun activities organised on the day.

Colin Clark, a stalwart of the community over many years, lit the  beacon – only one of five in Argyll officially registered as a Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacon.

Mary Clark with Holly, winner of Best Trick in the dog show.

Keeping the beacon theme, a team of bakers made beacon tarts with ingredients sourced from each of the UK’s four countries and ceremonially cut by Elizabeth
Luckhoff, aged 6.

Other attractions included more baking, platinum trifles, a dog show with novelty classes, children’s races and rounders for all ages.

And Diu Regnare, a tune specially written by Pipe Major Stuart Liddell of Inveraray for the Platinum Jubilee, was piped by Jamie McAndrew to coincide with other pipers across the world.
