A Taste of Morocco

The Eassie, Nevay & Kirkinch Community Association’s (ENKCA) hosted a fundraising Traditional Moroccan Buffet evening, at Mervat’s Village Gallery and Restaurant in Meigle on Thursday 18th June,

The event was part of ENKCA’s ongoing campaign to replace the former community hall closed last year. ENKCA director, David Lawrence said, “The meal was an excellent opportunity to socialise with the community whilst raising funds at the same time. Mervat agreed to provide a set meal at a certain price and part of the proceeds will go directly to the fund for our new community Hub. The £320 raised will be doubled, through the Scottish Rural Development Programme’s matched funding. Due to the quick sell-out of tickets and the huge success of the event, ENKCA has decided to organise another Moroccan evening at Mervat’s on Thursday 6th August.

“We had enormous support from local sponsors - Mervat's, AG Barr PLC, Glamis Castle, Glamis Castle Kitchen restaurant, Business Logical Ltd, Eassie. The Star Rock Shop, Kirriemuir, Leah Philipson Masters of Partylite and Cairn O'Mohr Winery, Errol and H.B. Rutherford who printed our tickets.”

The event also marked the opening of the ENKCA plant stall, which will be in permanent residence at Mervat's Village Gallery, in aid of the ENKCA hall fund.
