Mission Accomplished

I was in Portpatrick with Lisa and whilst there was tasked by Hon Sec D Smith BEM of obtaining a photograph of the statue of Burns situated in the grounds of the bowling green. It was erected on 1st May 1929 by Portpatrick and District Burns Club and I’m told that Burns Howff Club members helped to repair it when it was damaged in the 1980’s during past president Donald Urqhart’s year in office.

It may be that some of our more senior members remember this and can enlighten us further. I will attempt to publish an up to date photograph on the blog.

  1. Well done Mr. President.

    I well remember the back breaking toil in the mid 80’s being ordered about by Jack Johnstone who used language which would take the shell of an egg at times. But it is pleasing to see that members’ efforts still endure and the statue still stands.
