The Lord Provost cuddled up to 250 infants for the special celebration held in the City Chambers on Saturday for Baby's First Christmas.

Among the youngsters invited to the event, along with their families, was 11-week-old John Stevenston, from Garthamlock.

Little John, dressed in dungarees, was so overwhelmed that he howled during his moment in the spotlight.

The annual event sees 1000 infants from the city invited to register to receive a silver angel, a Hamley's teddy bear and a certificate to mark the occasion.

The first 250 babies who registered got the ivitation to meet Mrs Docherty in the City Chambers, where they certainly kept the Lord Provost and the photographer very busy!
