    Opened this day in 1960, a silent film of the ceremony can be seen here:

    I was in primary 2 at Goodlyburn then but don’t remember getting time off to go and see the queen but have vague memories of the Rannoch road newsagents selling flags.

    Are you talking about keown?
    Nothing against him personally, but him getting selected for the squad v Celtic at the weekend ahead of Gordon must be fairly soul destroying for Liam Gordon.

    55saint reacted to andrew in St Johnstone Disabled Supporters Association   
    While the national group has apparently somewhat lost its way (the recent AGM was more ‘descends into chaos’ than maintaining its focus) the St Johnstone Disabled Supporters Association continues to make good progress.
    When we started four years ago we met every month. Last season we met every two months and this coming season we will be meeting quarterly.
    This is a clear measure of success (if we resolved everything we wouldn’t need a group at all) demonstrated by some of what we have achieved below. We have done our “job” well and our club have responded positively in so many ways.
    Here are some examples:
    Ramp at club shop.
    Servery orders taken from and delivered to seats to remove need to negotiate doors, queues and areas of limited space.
    Allocated spaces for wheelchair season ticket holders.
    Allocated and/or prearranged parking.
    Radar locks on some disabled toilets and all seven disabled toilets have emergency pull cords.
    Non-reflective glass to be installed at ticket office.
    New audio equipment acquired allowing those requiring commentary to sit anywhere in the stadium. Previously there were only some seats with sockets beside them.
    Away bus parking improved at national level - a St Johnstone DSA initiative - no more having to walk up to half a mile on cold and wet winter nights for disabled or elderly folk.
    Seating provided to enable a personal assistant to sit next to the person they accompany, not behind or in front.
    Improved signage around McDiarmid Park.
    Awareness training conducted with staff - an ongoing exercise.
    McDiarmid Park has received positive reviews on Euan’s Guide and other web sites dealing with accessibility.
    The group has had a great insight into the various roles within our club, with guests having included: chairman, manager, Paul Smith, groundsman, physio, club poet, hospital radio, players, ex-players, ticket office staff, police, club chaplain, and more. Our guests are invited to stay for the whole meeting and most of them left with a greater understanding of what it is like to attend football matches as a supporter with a disability.
    We have established excellent working relationships within the club, treating everyone with respect, and have achieved everything without constitution, committee, office bearers or money - our only rule being “no moaning!”
    Our thanks go to the chairman, to Paul Smith and to Bev, the latter being our main club contact and great ally!
    We are grateful to the club for providing an accessible room for us to hold our meetings.
    All of this also benefits the club who could not be accused of failing in their duty to accommodate disabled spectators in accordance with the Equality Act. On the contrary the club can point to all they have done, and continue to do, as proof they are proactively and positively engaging with disabled supporters in keeping with the spirit of the aforementioned legislation.

    55saint reacted to The Inspiration in Panama / Singapore / Athens Saint   
    Hi everyone.
    Found out the news about my dad on Friday. It was very sudden but as none of his family were in Panama at the time details are few and far between at the minute. Expecting a call from the Embassy in the next couple of days and will know more then.
    He was a great Dad and loved nothing more than telling me on a Saturday morning who he’d been winding up on WAP over the last few days and who he was beating in the predictor!
    Being away from Perth for many years meant this place gave him an outlet for all things St Johnstone and enabled him to have debates and conversations, which many of us get in the pub on a Saturday afternoon, with all of you.
    Thanks to anyone who berated him, nibbled at his bait or rised to him any time he put up a nonsense post as he thrived on it and, while he often came across as abrasive on here, it was always in jest with a tongue firmly in cheek and his way of still being involved with saints from a far.
    My brother Saul and I (Joss) would like to pass on our thanks to everyone for their kind words and for humouring him over the past few years
