The Sun's Shining, Let's Burn Some Burgers

Children from the glens and bens and the broad vale of Strathmore swarmed through Eassie Primary School on Tuesday evening to enjoy a burger cooked by a collection of Dads, while Mums had the pleasure of a meal free of crockery and cutlery.

The annual Dalguise Barbecue, for schools in the Kirriemuir cluster was another success with pupils from the schools in the area mixing freely and happily especially around the football goal mouth.

The event was an ideal venue for the Lottery draw and this month’s winner is Jim Breckenridge, who won £78.64. Consolation prizes of £9.83 went to Malcolm and Sheena Stewart and Paul and Leah Philipson- Masters.
ENKCA took advantage of the BBQ to make its presence felt, despite the closure of the hall. Bedding plants and culinary herbs, bed linen and Name the Whisky Challenge all added to the ENKCA hall fund.

Individual primary schools in the cluster ran tombola, lucky dip, and various other lucky draw and game stalls while Cortachy had a particularly fine and thriving plant stall. A Fair Trade table offered a range of goodies from biscuits and sweets to jewellery, accessories and ornaments, all of which help to support communities to earn sustainable incomes throughout the world.

Thanks to all parents, friends, pupils and school staff who organised, cooked, tidied up or simply bought and devoured BBQed treats.
