Tayin­loan’s ter­rific fun day

Campbeltown Courier - - LEISURE -

THE ‘VORACIOUS’ midges en­joy­ing a good feed as the raf­fle was drawn were the only mild an­noy­ance at Tayin­loan’s an­nual fun day.

Adults and chil­dren skipped into the vil­lage play­ing field last Sun­day for an af­ter­noon of en­ter­tain­ment, in­clud­ing a bouncy cas­tle, mini High­land games and a pet show, with freshly cooked burg­ers and hot dogs on sale as well as all the usual stalls.

The chil­dren were rarely off the bouncy cas­tle, while par­ents and fam­ily mem­bers cleared up at the bak­ing and bot­tle stalls.

The lucky dips didn’t last long ei­ther, and the young­sters were soon tear­ing around the field blow­ing whis­tles and bub­bles.

Those keen to test their strength gave the mini High­land games a go, toss­ing the caber and hurl­ing the hag­gis, while mixed teams took on the tug of war.

Af­ter the raf­fle was drawn, a game of adults vs chil­dren fivea-side foot­ball blew away the midges. With youth on their side, the chil­dren’s team won 3-1.

Three dogs and their own­ers: He­lena Mcal­lis­ter with Tilly, Cath Sheldrick with Joy and Anita Gal­braith and Mil­lie, turned up for the pet show but there were four classes with prizes so they were all given rosettes.

Nearly £400 was raised on the day and will go to­wards the re­gen­er­a­tion of the play­ing field.
