Over 600 people enjoyed the new programme for this year’s Falkland Festival.

The busiest day was the Street Fair on June 20 which had stalls offering crafts, jewellery, speciality food, plants, woodwork and much more.

It was opened by Stephen Gethins MSP who was joined by Councillor David McDiarmid. Visitors were treated to new additions to the programme including a Birds of Prey performance and a step back in time with Medieval Methil. There was also a workshop from Clydebuilt Puppets.

Over 220 people visited the opening event which was a Strawberry and Champagne Tea in the Orchard.

Rena Ressiman, chairman of the committee, said: “We are extremely grateful to the two main funders for enabling us to extend the festival programme and revive the whole event - the Living Lomonds Partnership and Fife Council Community Grants. Also to the donors of prizes for the raffle. It was a real team effort from the newly formed committee and we are looking for more people to join us to make the Falkland Midsummer Festival 2016 even better.”

There will be an open meeting in the Village Hall on September 8 at 7.00 p.m to review and discuss ideas for 2016.
