Tub 2016 - Dean Thomson


Tub Thomson pictured here with his wife Ashley and his parents Billy & Jane.

Dean Thomson was voted in as the 19th Copshaw Common Riding Tub on Saturday 14th May following a very large turnout of voters both young and old, they came with their Zimmer's and their Motability scooters to take part in the most important vote this year, never mind the Scottish Parliament or Brexit, this was the one and around 70% of the village and surrounding area's took part in the vote.
 The 3 candidates ran very strong campaigns this year, with posters and flyers and all sorts of election paraphernalia, trying to secure the position of 2016 Tub, both Deev and Mhairi should be congratulated for helping make this year's vote the success it was.
 Tub Thomson will lead his followers around the boondaries on Saturday 2nd July, where the usual fun and games and new ancient traditions will take place, before that of course we have the Ride Oot Bye on Saturday 4th June, followed by the Tubs bike clip doo later that night, the ceremony at the Ride Oot will be interesting this year seeing the Tub lead his followers in the march to commemorate a great victory over the auld enemy, back in the time of the battle the Tub would likely have been on the other side!!
 A report on the ride oot and Bike clip doo will appear in the July Clatter, if we can remember what happened!
 So get ready to dust off your trusty steeds and come and join Tub Thomson on his big day you won't regret it.
 Remember we are here for a guid time no a lang time.
Hip Hip.
