A downpour failed to dampen the enthusiasm of the people of Cousland.
The inclement weather may have washed out the planned gala day, but the locals didn’t get downhearted.
They organised a family picnic a few weeks later and were blessed with sunshine.
The fun day featured races, five-a-side football, a bouncy castle and a barbecue. And plenty of smiling faces.
