Inveraray Games stalwart Margaret Mather is retiring from her duties as secretary of the games after 26 years.

Reflecting on her final games as secretary, Margaret said: ‘The time is right to pass it on to a younger generation to get involved. I’m now looking forward to actually watching the events next year and seeing what’s at the games.’

Deanne Hagan takes over as secretary. She said: ‘They are very big shoes to fill. Margaret has been absolutely amazing over the years and has been great to me during the handover.’

A special surprise was in store for Margaret at the close of the games as the Duke of Argyll made a special speech and presentation to commemorate her service to the Inveraray Games.
