St. Mungo's Summer Fayre displayed a wide selection of goodies for the
visitors to browse.
The bottle stall with Mary Paterson, helped by
Barbara and Neil Sprott. had
a wide selection of bottles with all sorts of things to drink in them.
Eyes were drawn to some rare vintages, which at three tickets for a
pound seemed great value, if you managed to pick the right ticket from
Marchant and Helen Sutherland served visitors to the home baking stall, which heaved under
loaves of every type, including my favourite tea loaf, with no nuts
clearly displayed on the label. Good to see our bakers keeping up the
standards. A range of marmalades was joined by some tomato
plants, in case you wanted to grow your own.
Marion Mather was on the cards stall. A card for every occasion was available to buy, all hand made too.
Ovenstone and Elaine Jacobs helped on the toys and bric-a-brac stalls, while Isabel Donachie and Linn Kinloch
had sold most of their tombola tickets with prizes going fast, offering four attempts for a pound.
book stall was stocked with a lot of new fresh titles to tempt those
browsers. Everything from romance to thrillers, who done it to non
fiction. Childrens books also featured with Broon's annuals as well as
Purple Ronnie on display.
my journey around the stalls it was time to visit the strawberry tea
counter and select some cake and strawberries to go with my cup of tea.
Olive Darling and Trish Hunter kept the cakes fresh and ready, while
Joyce Hunter, Carole Lough and
Margaret Barry were busy in the kitchen, and
serving tables to keep the cups filled with a seemingly
endless supply of tea and coffee.
Soon it was time
for the raffle to be drawn, which Susan Duns had been busy selling tickets. The prizes started to fly off the table
as delighted winners stepped forward. The two knitted 'reversible'
ladies, which changed if you turned them upside down, were a real draw.
Bill Webster was a lucky winner so a granddaughter is in for a big surprise.
Barbara Sprott who knitted the dolls, told me that they are a real hit
with young girls who find them fascinating. Certainly first time I had
seen anything like them.
A great morning was had by all
and though it seemed cloudy outside when we started the sun was shining
by time we had finished, a sure sign that summer is here.
Ovenstone announced to the Sunday morning service congregation that the
fayre had raised £575.
Well done to all who visited the Fayre,
contributed in any way, and supported your church fund raising
