BOOKMARK at The Blairgowrie & Rattray Highland Games

8th Sep 2014

On a bright but windy day, Team BOOKMARK was out in force at Bogles Field, Blairgowrie on Sunday last. Volunteers manned the entrance gates, issuing tickets and programmes.

Inside the grounds, BOOKMARK pitched its gazebo and got to work encouraging members of the public to pick up a programme and chat about the wide range of events on offer this year. It was very heartening to find so many people had heard about us and were planning on coming to some sessions over the weekend of 10th – 12th October.

We signed up some children for miniBOOKMARK and caught the interest of many adults whose reading interests ranged from fiction to poetry, gardening, travel, whisky and . . . so much more.

Many thanks to all our volunteers who, once again, gave up their valuable time to help promote Blairgowrie, Rattray & The Glens very own book festival.

We even caught the attention of Laurence Blair Oliphant, Chieftain of the Games!


It was great fun and beautifully organised. A wonderful community venue, great flowers, fantastic sound and light and I love the army of red t-shirts - I think I’ll be taking a few ideas back to Bloody Scotland with me. Please ask me back and thank you for asking me to Chair Ron
