S.R.Crockett Birthday events 24th September 2014.
One hardy Raider rode all the way from Castle Douglas, via Auchencairn to Balcary Point. Another few hardy Raiders met at Auchencairn, looked round 'Crockett corner' in the Auchencairn Community Garden and then went on to Balcary where they all entertained each other with readings from Crockett's work while overlooking 'Rathan' Island. The tides were not favourable for a walk over to 'Rathan' but we're working on that for some time next year. Hopefully spring or early summer. In the meantime, enjoy the views.
In the evening Crockett played to a packed house at Beltie Books, Wigtown. Hosted by Raider member Andrew Wilson, food related readings and a chance to sample traditional soda scones and oatcakes along with birthday Gingerbread Rabbits were enjoyed by a wheen of folk!
