Mrs Margaret Roxburgh who has a long history of creating winning dance team entrants for the Arran Music Festival has retired from teaching the young dancers at Brodick Primary School.

At a special assembly held in her honour, as the school finished up for the spring holiday, pupils had the opportunity to thank her for all of her help over the past 11 years and presented her with a bouquet of flowers to show their gratitude.

Mrs Roxburgh retired from teaching in Kilmarnock, however she continued working with pupils at Brodick primary since coming to live on Arran and often volunteered her assistance to the school whenever she could.

With her assistance Brodick pupils regularly won trophies for their dancing entries in the music festival, which celebrated its 90th anniversary this year.
