Fab­u­lous first food fes­ti­val

The Arran Banner - - News -

The first Cor­rie Food Fes­ti­val proved to be a runaway suc­cess on Satur­day.

The event was a col­lec­tive ef­fort by the Ar­ran Supper Club, Mara Fish Bar and Deli, Ferghan Mhor Ve­gan B & B in San­nox and The Sand­wich Sta­tion. And as well as a vast ar­ray of food there were also drinks to sam­ple, in­clud­ing Ar­ran whisky and gin, and Ar­ran craft prod­ucts on sale.

As a first event it was held as a trial run, but that did not stop a queue of peo­ple out­side Cor­rie and San­nox Hall at noon wait­ing for it to open and by 4pm all the food was gone.

One of the or­gan­is­ers told the Ban­ner: ‘To be hon­est we never imag­ined it would be so busy and we’re de­lighted it was re­ceived so well by lo­cals and vis­i­tors. We did the first one as a sort of test run but there’s ob­vi­ously a de­mand for it so for any­one that missed out we’ll be do­ing an­other one in the near fu­ture.’

The day made a small profit which will be do­nated to the Ar­ran food bank.
