SNAPSHOTS brought back memories for yet another Chronicle reader — while an up-to-date event that he took part in also featured, elsewhere in the paper.

Scout leader Iain Burgoyne contacted us to say: “The photo in your paper showing the burger stall was taken at New Cumnock gala day in 1998.

“Pictured, from left, are Jean McHarg and Maureen Burgoyne — both now deceased, Neil Reid, Iain Burgoyne, Fiona Hart , Kevin Walker, Claire Walker and Margaret Walker.

“To this day we still continue to cook the burgers at the gala day...they must be good!”

Cumnock Chronicle:

Now, almost 20 years later, amazingly Iain was also in the Chronicle edition of February 21 on page 19, just two pages on from Snapshots, pictured above.

On this occasion, New Cumnock Scouts were one of a number of local groups to benefit after an event was held to celebrate the life of the late Jim Adams.

Proceeds from the tribute were divided between several beneficiaries and Iain was pictured gratefully accepting a cheque from Mr Adams’ daughter Louise.

Iain can also be found slaving over a hot stove at Glenafton home matches where he sometimes helps out in the snack bar — look out Masterchef!
