The Upper Nithsdale ENABLE Christmas party saw 115 members and friends pack into the Kirkconnel Miners' Hall.

Mr Pagan said Grace before the company enjoyed a three course dinner which was prepared and cooked by Crown Caterers from Biggar. The band for the evening was newly formed Sound Scape.

Midway through the evening, the big man himself, Santa Clause, came for his annual visit to the great delight of the members present.

After members received their gifts from Santa, they sang some Christmas carols which the quest always enjoy.

A spokesperson for the organising committee said: "We would like to thank all the people who kindly supplied raffle prizes and gave donations so that we can have this brilliant party."
