Many thanks to everyone who helped in any way to make Scott's Selkirk such a success this year - all the wonderful perfomers, sponsors, volunteers, stallholders, and visitors.  The weather was kind to us, the fireworks spectacular, and the concert at the end of the day was superb.


Thank you all, see you next year!
