Pipers lead Peace Day march

To mark the annual International Day of Peace Father Mel and junior pipers lead P5-7s and members of the Cromarty Peace Group from the primary school to Hugh Miller's Cottage. Here, in the newly-created Garden of Reflection, the children installed a peace pole with messages written in four languages. After a welcome from NTS manager Dr Alix Powers-Jones, Sandy Thomson of the Peace Group explained the meaning of the peace pole and called on Gaelic, Polish and Japanese speakers to read the message of "letting peace prevail". Children read their own messages, and the ceremony concluded with the ringing of the Peace Bell and a minute's silence.
