21st Highland Ball

To celebrate the coming of age of the annual ball of the Nelson Highland Pipe Band, a big crowd attended the function in the Stoke Hall. A feature of the ball was a "Highland Queen" contest. It was won by Helen Ilton (above centre). Others in the picture were runners-up, Marie Wagner and Shirley Davis, and the girls' partners, Gordon Wagner, Tom MacKay and Brian Phillips

Among those present were Mike Johnson and Linden Buckland (above), Bryce Buckland and Carol Gribble (left), and Hazel Ogg and Gladys and Les Cain (Below).


As usual, the band played several items for patrons to dance to.
