He said: “The weather went well and the crowds turned out so everything was fine.

“It’s all about the children and they seemed to have a great day.

“It was excellent all round. The local pubs and clubs did well at night too so it’s all good for the local community.

“I’m just delighted with how everything went. And I must thank Midlothian Council and the police for their help on the day.”

Not resting on their laurels, the gala day committee are now preparing for next year, which marks 25 years since the resurrection of the event.
