Christmas comes early to Dunaverty
Southend is in the festive spirit after a Christmas fayre kick-started the Yuletide season. Santa’s sleigh descended on Dunaverty Hall last Saturday so the big man could say hello to all the boys and girls who had popped in to meet him. There was bric-a-brac and homebaking on offer, as well as a raffle and bottle stall. The Courier’s longest serving staff member, Rebecca Harvey, was the talk of the town after winning a larger than life(size) giant teddy. Tea and coffee was also served at the event which raised £950.20.
Leah McIvor, four, Lachlan McIvor, two, Archie McCorkindale, three, and Elle Goddard, 21 months, wait patiently for Santa to arrive.
Sisters Helen Hunter, May Wilson and Jessie Wallace catch-up.
Marion Bell and Margaret Bakes wo-man the raffle stall.
Leighann Burns and Adele Martin sell wreaths and Christmas decorations hand-crafted by Leighann’s mum, Moira Ramsay, using fruit she dries herself and items for which she forages.
Pat Wallace sells various items of bric-abrac, including the cuddly teddy she is holding.
Jen Campbell, Sandy Watson and Malcolm Ronald enjoy a blether.
