Winter Festival - a Great Success

Our third annual Winter Festival, the first event in our new hall, turned out to be the most popular yet.

A constant stream of visitors had ample opportunity to get ahead with Christmas shopping whilst experience the novelty and comfort of our wonderful new building.

Many people commented on its cosy and friendly feel.

Many thanks to all those who made this event possible, especially Jane Brewster who organised it, but a special mention must be made of the hard-working kitchen crew who worked non-stop from the moment the doors opened to the close of the event.

At times the cafe was so busy that there was standing room only.

Well done everyone and many thanks to all those whose efforts or generosity allowed us to raise over two thousand pounds towards the residual costs of our marvelous new hall.

We were delighted to see John Swinney MSP and his wife Elizabeth who brought their 4 week old son Matthew

We are grateful to our talented friends who played for us

Seonaid made a special effort for Children in Need, with a lot of support from schoolfriends


We drew the 50/50 lottery for November - winners were;1st prize £76 - Peter Andrews, Kirrie runners up £9.50p - Marianne Jenkins, Audrey Duffy, both Balkeerie.

People enjoyed the opportunity to see what we've done with the money we've raised; how the building is laid out and how the component parts work together.


Catching up, the results of the 50/50 lottery for October - winners were;1st prize £76 - Jim Nicolson, Eassie, runners up £9.50p - June Scrimgeour, Kirrie, Ann Wilson, Harryhill.
