Summer Fete Update


Thank you everyone who contributed to and helped organise our Summer Fete on Saturday, your generosity was immeasurable.  It was wonderful to see our community come together and I think you will all agree the day was a great success.  The children were amazing and it was fantastic to receive so much support from the children, parents, grandparents, friends, family and the local Strathdearn residents.  The fact that we raised an impressive £1,245.80 is second to all the goodwill and community spirit felt.

It was a team effort, so thank you everyone.  I would like to say a special thank you to Andrea Macauley (you are a star) and the rest of the Parent Council (ie Lynda Banks, Tracey Ferguson, Lee Hammell, Gail Robertson, Anne Omand and Morven Bigham), Beryl Brookes and all of the Fraser family, Debbie and Tom Wrightson, Trish Norton, Kevin Cameron and family, Anne Omand’s Dad (for making the Coconut Shy), Pam and Alan Hardwick, Marie and Stewart Kennedy, the children for all their hard work and laughter, Shona Pringle, Jane Manson, Debbie Mackay, Angie and Richard Noble, Charlie Cameron and also to my family (Ian, Henry and Jessica) for helping out and for putting up with me over the last couple of weeks.

The feedback we received was really inspiring and we may just make it a regular calendar event.  If you have any comments or suggestions for improvement I would love to hear them, please email me at

Thank you and I hope you enjoy the summer break.
