Inverness Raft Race - Staff of B & Q

This photograph is of the staff of B & Q in Telford Street, dressed up for the Inverness Raft Race in 1991. In the back row, from left to right, are Graham Jervis, Mark Hall, Harry Innes or Kesson, Ross Paterson, Scott Ironside and Scott Mackenzie. In the front row, from the left, are Moira Muggridge, Ann Macleod, Maureen McNulty and Rhona MacGillivray.

The team dressed up as characters from the film 'Grease' and although they didn't win the raft race, they won first prize for fancy dress. The following year they repeated their success dressed up as 'Gangsters and Molls'.

The team's raft was a pink Cadillac which they built themselves. It was fitted with a tape deck which played the music from the film. The girls' costumes were also hand made and were red, blue, green and yellow.

This image was recently highlighted in Am Baile's 'Picture Detective' feature, run in conjunction with the Inverness Courier. In this case, we are grateful to Moira Muggridge, Ross Paterson, Ann Macleod and Ray Mackay for the information.
