Readers say butcher's pie prizes were well earned There was fulsome praise for an upper crust Monklands butcher who scooped three prizes at the World Scotch Pie Championships.
Hugh Black & Sons won the MacLeans Cup, awarded to the most outstanding speciality savoury product, and the diamond award in the hot savoury category for its premium chicken and ham hough pie along with a silver accolade for its stew pie in the same latter category.
Advertiser Facebook reader John Lindsay said: "Well done guys; and a smashing butcher."
Tracy Traynor went even further with her praise: "Best butcher ever, well done; I love their food."
Lisa Dalziel agreed: "The best butcher around. Their haggis is amazing!" Lynn MacLean highlighted another Hugh Black & Sons product: "Love them, and the macaroni pies are amazing too. Well done guys."
Marc Heenan Jones added: "Love a good auld mince pie - and steak for that matter."
Anne Taylor posted: "Well done. Love their mince pies. They are a great butcher and spotlessly clean."
Irene Steele opined: "Best butcher in Airdrie!" The fallout on the council's decision to close Kilbowie outdoor centre continues with Tom Johnston, leader of the local authority's SNP group saying it is "a bad decision for North Lanarkshire children".
Linda Davidson posted: "This has made me so angry. There's no way they build any new facility for the price of the land Kilbowie sits on.
"Why not spend what would be the difference upgrading Kilbowie instead? Caroline Johnstone Fisher commented: "This should not be happening. Kilbowie is a fantastic place - shame on them."
Julie Hendry added: "Shocking! This is so good for the kids learning independence and for kids that don't get holidays.
"Why don't they ask kids that have been, and kids that won't get the chance to go, to see what their views are?"
