Fortieth Wedding Lunch pictures

3 April 1998
The family asked us for the names of 30 special friends, but gave us no details of what they were planning. On the morning of 3 April, they gave us clues for a Treasure Hunt, which led us to the Champany Inn and Restaurant, on the outskirts of Linlithgow. Sandy and Christina, who were working in China, had flown home specially and spent the night there – to make sure that their visit was a surprise.
After coffee with them, they took us to Airth Castle Hotel in Stirlingshire, where the guests were assembled for lunch.
