Save Johnnie Walker!

Recently I participated in a march to try to prevent hundreds of jobs being lost in my local community. The world famous Scotch Whisky 'Johnnie Walker' - owned by Diageo - has been produced in Kilmarnock for nearly 200 years, but recently the company has announced plans to move production elsewhere. 
The effect this will have on the local community during this recession will be devastating and so over 20,000 people showed up for a march to try to prevent the move. The support from locals and the media was phenomenal, not to mention the creativity of the locals.  
Spotted a lady wearing this Johnnie Walker silk scarf she'd had for decades - of course I couldn't miss the opportunity to capture a wonderful stylish moment.
