Penicuik Church Float

We've talked off an on for years about the local churches having a float in the annual "Penicuik on Parade". It's the usual affair with cotton candy, cadets marching in perfect step and pipe bands. We tried something last year but it was only so successful. This year, the bull was taken by the horns and one of the local ministers found a stiltwalker, a tractor and a trailer. There were a million last minute glitches but a small group of ministers and parishioners managed to hand out balloons and literature along the whole course of the parade. It looks like we'll be doing this again next year.

The Rev'd Ian Cathcart on why the churches in Penicuik might have a float with David and Goliath at "Penicuik on Parade". Please excuse the lack of a wind screen for the microphone. A note to self has been issued

All present and accounted for: Four local clergy, a Philistine on stilts and a wee boy in cardboard armour.
