A GROUP of Rainbows from Kilsyth have received a special thank you from two rather important newlyweds.

The 1st A Kilsyth Rainbows sent a card to Prince William and Kate Middleton in April, congratulating them on their marriage.

Valerie Scott, now leader of the troupe, said: “We had a pre-Royal Wedding party. The girls got to come dressed for a wedding and we played games and had some food.

“We all talked about our thoughts on the royal wedding and after the party we sent a card to the Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge, congratulating them.”

She added: “Last week we got a reply letter from them, thanking us for our card and wishing us all the best.

“It was a great thing to show the Rainbows and they loved the photo that was sent to us of the royal couple.”

The response from the offices of the couple stated that they were “overwhelmed by the incredibly thoughtful messages they have received and were immensely touched that you [the Rainbows] and the leaders should take the trouble to write as you did.”
