Deep in rural Aberdeenshire lies the village of Monymusk (pop. 700).
Every spring the locals clear the main square of cars, lay timber frames and gravel on the tarmac and hold a tournament of petanque. In costume. French themed team names
and costumes prevail. Competition is fierce but tantrums certainly bad form.
It’s a community day, everyone’s invited and made to feel welcome, even nosey photographers.
