Cumnock 2016

Our celebratory event of Cumnock being made a Police Burgh in 1866 was on Saturday 10th December and was a great success.

Here are some of the Victorian style photographic portraits of guests, the screen-printed commemorative postcard featuring the hand-stamped original Cumnock Burgh seal from the 1860s and a visit from the Cumnock Weathercock - not seen for 45 years! Read about it HERE
