The main procession followed at 1pm with floats and local groups parading through the town in front of large crowds.

A packed gala day afternoon programme then took place in Memorial Park.

The gala party went to the town’s war memorial for a short ceremony at 3pm, with the presentation of a new poppy bench by the Loanhead lodge.

The gala day was part of the Loanhead 350 festival, celebrating the 350th anniversary of the grant of Loanhead’s Royal Charter, with events held across the town for three weeks to mark this milestone.
