Many thanks to all who supported the recent Hogmanay Party in the new hall. 
Tickets were sold out.  
More than 100 people enjoyed live music, stovies, kids party games, a raffle and quiz as well as a piper to bring in the Bells.  
Over £1,000 was raised which is a great way to begin a busy year of fundraising.  

The raffle alone brought in well over £200. A major contributor to the raffle hamper was Scotmid in Alyth who kindly offered early in the process to fulfill anything which could not be found from elsewhere. They supplied two bottles of wine and the majority of the other contents. Dorwards the butcher in Alyth kindly provided  a selection of jams and sauces and the Spar in Meigle donated soup, mustard and shortbread. Glamis Castle provided chutney, napkins and oatcakes and David Sim (the ironmongers in Alyth) gave us some planted hyacinth bulbs. HB Rutherford provided the third prize cased bottle of red wine.
A number of members of the community made significant contributions including a bottle of Grouse, the bottle of malt for the whisky challenge, a bottle of liqueur and prizes for the children's raffle.
