St Andrews in Focus - Issue 77 July / August 2016

From the Editor

Flora Selwyn May 2016

The words of my brother’s old school song poignantly come to mind: 

"Where are the men who have gone before us 
Onward from Elizabeth’s day?
Vanished their names from our lips, but needing
Monument neither in brass nor clay…"

However, in St Andrews today, born and bred, still living here, are families whose forebears made our town what it is. We should honour them. To celebrate them I invited them to a get-together; about half of them were able to come to an enjoyable reunion, reported in this issue. I make a plea that they should be included by those looking ahead, planning St Andrews’ future.

The Hamish McHamish statue is about to have a voice! The recently-formed Hamish Foundation, set up to support family activities in the town, has commissioned a Hamish App telling the story of our sadly-missed Hamish at the start of a trail ending at Jannetta’s Gelateria. It should be ready for this summer’s visitors.
