Fete Weekend is this Weekend!

Hope you are all looking forward to a great community weekend? Things kick off Fri night with the kid’s disco up at the hall – an evening of tunes, glow sticks and sugar rushes with renowned village DJ Jim Cook. P1-P3 @ 6.30pm (adult supervision required) P4-P7 @ 7.45pm, see flier for full details.

Then on Saturday it’s the fete itself at the hall from 1-4pm. We’ve got some lovely stalls coming along – Going A Bit Potty, Sweet, Allan’s Chilli Products, Aromie Design, Charlene’s Bespoke Bows and Cakes, Michelle Morton Designs (who will hopefully also have some of her new venture Cordon Farm Flowers along), Minerva Blue Sewing, Three Saints Way, The Wee Travel Company, Enjo, Partylite, Usborne Books, Forever Living and much more along with our usual second hand books, cakes, bottles, face painting, hair braiding and a cracking raffle stall. We’ve teas & homebaking, a bouncy castle, an ice cream van and community stalls such as Abernethy Scouting, Abernethy Baby & Toddler Group, a #supportourLily stall and a Community Council initiative. The hotly contested kid’s fancy dress competition will be judged at 1.30pm – group and individual prizes. It promises to be a great afternoon out!

Sunday at 1pm is the annual Abernethy Hill Race – The Castlelaw Challenge! Best time is just over 16 mins from the square up to the top and back down again. Don’t worry if you can’t quite manage that time, as more sedate paces are equally welcome. Registration from 12.30pm in the square. Weather dependant.
