Back row (left to right): Mr Michael Herriott (Chairman of the Guild) and Capt James Evans (Vice-Chairman of the Guild). Front row (left to right): Duncan Cairns, Sarah McGonigle, Joanne Weatherburn (newly admitted Freemen) Councillor Gregah Roughead (Town Mayor), Mr Liam Mutch (Sheriff), Stephanie McQueen, Rebecca McQueen (newly admitted Freemen).

Due to the wet weather, they posed for a picture inside rather than the traditional spot on the town hall steps.
