On 11th June 2007 the Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament

Mr Fergusson said that he was impressed by the book’s presentation and content adding that such enterprise by small communities must be praised and supported. He gladly posed for a photograph with shop owner Barry Smart but unfortunately the only camera available, a mobile phone wasn’t really up to the job.
