NOW AND THEN . . . there was a huge queue at the door of Blanefield’s Village Club last Friday night for the launch of Anne Johnstone and Martin Shields book about the village. The hall was packed and they sold nearly 300 copies on the night and Anne and Martin’s hands were aching by the end of the night as they were signing copies for people from 6.30 until 9pm. Martin said: “Everyone enjoyed the night and there was a great community spirt and people were enjoying the village togetherness of the event.”
