St Margaret’s Hospice in Clydebank has just found out that it set a new Guinness World Record for the most Easter themed hats worn - with 281 people taking part in the event last year on April 17 at Our Holy Redeemer Primary School, Clydebank.

Children from the school helped to celebrate the achievement when West Dunbartonshire Provost Denis Agnew presented Sister Rita Dawson from the hospice with their certificate recently - they are with Jonny Beatie and Libby McArthur from River City, former SFA chief executive Gordon Smith, hospice supporter Ian Thomson, hospice fundraising officer Sandra McNab and hospice administrator John McLintock.

Gavin Brownlee won the competition for the best Easter themed hat on the day and 100 entrants were also awarded “golden tickets” to take part in a parade. (Ref: M20468c)
