The weather gods smiled on Dingwall Trust as it hosted the 67th annual Dingwall Association Picnic recently. Dingwall was delighted to welcome dozens of former residents and families, from across the decades, to reconnect with their former home and share stories of the past with the children and young people who currently live here. A formal welcome was followed by a round of friendly sports games between cottages (with former residents joining in), then a BBQ lunch, and finally presentation of the Dingwall Association Shield – this year won jointly by Fraser and Stewart cottages. Thank you so much to everyone who came and who helped out, especially members of the association who brought the traditional fruit and sweet treats to finish!
