We have just been informed, with much sadness, of the passing of Ian Anderson of Alva, the Guest of Honour at the 160th Games in 2016. A hugely respected figure in the town, he will be missed not only by his widow Betty, son Ian and wider family but by the whole of the local community.
The Games Committee wishes to extend to Betty and the family our most sincere condolences on the passing of this most gentle of men and local legend.
