The Provost o Ceres

We'v met the provost o Ceres aince afore, but this is sic a guid photie o the auld carle. Ceres (soondit 'see-riss') is a toun in Fife an the provost haes sut here for a lang time. The word provost springs fae the Latin praepositus an means the body that is 'in front place'. This is whit wey ilka burgh in Scotland haes its provost - the heid body or magistrate o the toun.

Photie taen bi Michael Hance.
