The sun shone on Saturday for an annual event in the East Neuk which enjoyed excellent popular support.

Kilrenny Church staged its Street Market in the community’s Kirk Wynd – with a number of people travelling a considerable distance to join local people for the festivities.

A very impressive £3350 was raised during the afternoon for church funds – and the weather was so good that the strawberries and ice cream stall in particular did a roaring trade.

Visitors from Perth, Dundee, Edinburgh and Falkirk mingled with East Neuk residents, while other stalls included toys, home baking, home-made jewellery and crafts, and more.

Church minister the Rev Arthur Christie said the market had become a very popular event and the organisers were delighted with the level of support.

“It went very well,” he said. “We did a history and opened up the church – there were non-stop visitors to the church and the graveyard as well.”
