A new event designed to showcase the work of local charities has been organised at Craigtoun Country Park on Sunday, August 30.

The Friends of Craigtoun are giving charities from the area the opportunity to hold events or presentations at the park to demonstrate all the good work they do within the community.

Stalls can be as inventive or informative as each charity wishes.

Displays of pamphlets, brochures of informational leaflets are welcome or stallholders are invited to add to the fun with an interactive display such as coconut shies or games that can involve visitors to the park.

Bill Sangster, Friends of Craigtoun said: “Proceeds from any of the events or activities on the stalls go straight back to the charities.

“We are also prepared for inclement weather with plenty of marquees and wet weather options.”

The attraction packed open day is free and will feature all the usual entertainments and activities including the Rio Grande Train, ‘Puffin’ Billy’, model boat club, falconry displays and music from the the Methil Pipe Band.

Mr Sangster said: “Visitors can also view the park gardens and greenhouses which are beautiful at this time of year.

“We would also like to thank the Fife Council gardeners for all their efforts and hard work throughout the bad weather, to ensure that we can enjoy the vast amount of flowers and shrubs at their best. You must visit now before the autumn sets in.”

To register interest, telephone Craigtoun Office, 01334472013, during office hours or email to provide a description of any event or stall requirements.
