Previous Fund-Raising Activities

  • The Wine Tasting raised £200 from the event and sale of bottles of wine. Many thanks to Ian Macphail for a fun and informative evening.
  • The Scavenger Hunt raised £482. People loved traipsing around the village counting houses and collecting daisies along the way. The sun shone allowing the consumption of burgers and beer on the village green. Many thanks to Debbie and Yvonne for all their hard work.

The Quiz Night 2012 raised a whopping £550 pounds. Thank you to all who came along and supported and especially to those who helped out.

CHRISTMAS FAIR 2011.  This was another successful event, raising over £400 for the Primary School Parent Council funds. Many many thanks to all who got involved and helped this to be such a success, and to all those who came along. We hoped you enjoyed it. The Parent Council have used their money this year to fund various school trips and to buy additional resources for the school.

END OF TERM DISCO & BBQ was held on Friday 1st July. It stayed fine and dry which allowed all the adults to socialise and enjoy the sunshine outside, while the children danced around to the music outside.


This was held on Sunday 8th May in the park and was a great success. A big thank you to everyone who helped on the day and particular thanks to Nicola, Niki, Yvonne and Debbie for their huge efforts in organising and planning. The weather stayed fine, the gala court looked stunning, burgers and cakes sold out, the dogs were all well behaved and great fun was had by all. Definitely need to look at ‘volunteers’ for the stocks next year  – more parents and teachers required to save Alex getting another soaking?!
A huge sum of £1,400 was raised and I’m sure Miss McKinnon will already have lots of ideas on how to spend this!

Here are some pictures from the Christmas Fair 2010.
