Sun­shine draws the crowds at church fete

The Arran Banner - - News -

The warm weather, bright sun­shine and un­doubt­edly the smell of a bar­be­cue en­sured that the Cor­rie Church fete at­tracted a large num­ber of vis­i­tors wish­ing to sam­ple some of the many de­lights on of­fer.

The large ex­panse of gar­den at the Cor­rie and San­nox Vil­lage Hall was put to good use with an out­door golf­ing chal­lenge, a plant stall, a tombola and a gen­er­ous amount of seat­ing for peo­ple to sit and savour the home­bak­ing and bar­be­cue treats.

In­doors in the an­nex, fur­ther seat­ing was filled to ca­pac­ity with parched vis­i­tors en­joy­ing tasty re­fresh­ments and watch­ing the flow of pa­trons vis­it­ing the stalls.

Among them was a book stall, a silent auc­tion, a large bric-a-brac stall and an Eco Savvy sta­tion sell­ing re-pur­posed, sec­ond-hand and home-made items.

On of­fer too were holis­tic ther­a­pies from Brèagha Holis­tic Beauty and a jewellery stall which at­tracted a con­sid­er­able amount of in­ter­est. All funds gen­er­ated on the day will con­trib­ute to the church fund which meets run­ning costs, build­ing main­te­nance and up­keep ex­penses.
