Donna Scott from The Rothbury Highland Pipe Band

Our thanks go to The Rothbury Highland Pipe band for sending Donna Scott out on a very rainy Thursday evening to come and play the pipes for our beacon lighting in honour of the Queens Platinum Jubilee.

Despite the rain it was a momentous occasion, with Prosecco and canapes for those in attendance, and despite the rain we all had a great time, including the cows who joined in by mooing along to the pipes. 

We would like to thank Donna (our Piper) and Dave

Michael, Iss, Delilah, Johanna and Nori,

Sian and Dave

Also Felix and Shaun for a brilliant fire pit beacon that burnt bright, warm and across The Coquet Valley for all to see, inspiring cars passing to beep their horns. 

Congratulation Ma'am on your 70 years Platinum Jubilee!

Our thanks to bruno Peek the chief organiser of the Beacon Lighting around  Britain and Historic Houses for all their support.
