ABOD Parade - Airdrie - 20th May - 12 noon

60 posts in this topic

I remember my dear old mum used to say whenever she saw a Walk. " They always look very smart in their uniforms, very well turned out" Then she'd some comment about their women folk and ironing, but I'd usually stopped listening to her by then. 😂

If you're having a drink then avoid the Stirrup Stane or (obviously) the Harp and Sharock (which should be closed after the Scottish cup final anyway if rumours are true) which are on the route. Everywhere will be fine- bluebell, Albert and the masons on the route are your best bets or else the orange or 166 or 203.

Heading through shortly, anybody any tips on the best place to park close to the route? I don't know the area so something I can put into Google maps lol.

There's a fair bit of parking at aldi's and around that area,or Morrison's is decent and a minutes walk from the town centre. There's a wee car park further up just past the lodge which will have a few spaces

Park at Morrison's behind the court. Have a wee shandy in the bluebell bar opposite the court. Has some nice cultural tunes on the jukebox and also a pool table

Great parade other than the weather. Some great bands these days - excellent standard and healthy in numbers.  

GPB great as always.  Airdrie Grenadiers are a great little band now. Pollok and Pride of the Grange also stood out for me.

I take it the weather was bad?

I went down to watch the Greenock Murray club Apprentice boys and Greenock Grenadiers do the return leg but it was cancelled as the got soaked in Airdrie.

Cancelled because they got wet? please tell me this is not true, if it is then fucking hell we're in more trouble as a community than I thought possible.

That's what i heard mate, i was standing at the park they were departing from and an old couple stopped in their car and asked if i was waiting on them, when i said aye they told me this.

I drove back home and noticed they had already laid a wreath at the cenopath, that was supposed to conclude the return leg, so it was definately cancelled.

Not good at all, when I was in the band we would have paraded in anything and everything and all day, in fact bad weather made us stick the chest out further and think bring it on , fs m8.

Aye we got a few right heavy showers today down here aswell, was a bit annoyed because i haven't seen the new Greenock band the Grenadiers, the Greenock Young Defenders were a good band back in the day but were disbanded.
