Johnstone Fire Rally

The Renfrewshire annual Fire Rally came to Johnstone this year.

It was very well attended and nice to see the pipe band leading the appliances to the Square.

It's a pity the weather took a turn for the worst but the kids seemed to be having rare old time with all the flashing lights and the noise of the klaxons.

We had some local dignitaries in attendance and the provost was called on to participate in some of the demonstrations.

Thanks are due to all the volunteers for making the event such a success.
