PREPARATIONS are well under way for the Ardchattan fete on Sunday July 30 between noon and 4pm.
Ardchattan Priory is the setting for the annual community event and this year the Beavers and Cubs will be assisting with the smooth running of the day.
This is an important fundraising event for the local Guide and Scout groups, along with Scotland’s Garden Scheme and other local charities. There is something for everyone with a selection of games and sports for children of all ages.
Popular soup lunches will be served from noon until 1.45pm and delicious homebaking with tea from 2.15pm to 4pm.
Volunteers and local bakers give generously to this event and last year more than £ 3,000 was raised.
This is a great family day out. Everyone is welcome and admission is £4 with children under-15 admitted free.
IN AN effort to curtail the spread of Japanese knotweed along the Bonawe Road, some spraying on the invasive plant has been undertaken. The areas sprayed are clearly marked off with red and white tape and people are advised to avoid contact with these areas.
