Strathearn Herald - - INTIMATIONS - Lynn Duke

There was no ques­tion over who would ben­e­fit from a re­cent fundrais­ing ef­fort by quizzers at Cri­eff ’s Meadow Inn.

Twenty-seven teams took part in a spe­cial quiz night hosted by the pro­pri­etors and staff of the Bur­rell Street hostelry.

They raised al­most £600 to­wards Friends of MacRosty Park’s drive to have all-abil­ity play equip­ment in­stalled at the Strath’s flag­ship greenspace.

San­dra Lowe of Friends of MacRosty Park said: “Many thanks to John and Ian of the Meadow Inn, who hosted and spon­sored our fundrais­ing quiz night which was fan­tas­ti­cally or­gan­ised, ar­ranged and run by quiz master John An­nat.

“There was a fan­tas­tic turnout and £ 595.45 was raised for our all-abil­ity play equip­ment.

“Friends of MacRosty Park would like to thank ev­ery­one who sup­ported us at this event.”

San­dra added: “Our fundrais­ing to­tal cur­rently stands at £65,000 and we are ex­cited to say that early this month we will be meet­ing with PKC’s ar­chi­tect to get fi­nal ad­vice and draw­ings for our project, which will en­able us to get proper cost­ings for the project and de­tails can then be made pub­lic.

“We are hum­bled by the sup­port we have re­ceived from the lo­cal com­mu­nity, busi­nesses and var­i­ous groups to al­low this project to be­come a re­al­ity. With the in­stal­la­tion of all-abil­ity equip­ment in the park we will be al­low­ing all chil­dren to play to­gether re­gard­less
