Members of the Findhorn Residents’ Association are hard at work making final preparations for the weekend of the Findhorn Village Fair. With entertainment for all ages, the fair itself will be held at the Piers in Findhorn village from 1 – 4pm on the afternoon of Sunday 23rd July 2023.
After an absence of 4 years, the Findhorn Village Tombola will be back by popular demand on the evening of Friday 21st July. The Tombola, which is suitable for all ages, will be held in the James Milne Institute. Doors will open at 7pm for a 7.30pm start.
A summer ceilidh, with dancing to live music from Chameleon, has been organised by Findhorn Coastal Rowers and will be held in the James Milne Institute from 8 – 11pm on Saturday 22nd July. Tickets cost £10 and are available from Findhorn Village Store. BYOB.
At the Village Fair on Sunday 23rd July there will be live music throughout the afternoon and, in addition to a raffle with a £50 first prize, wheel of fortune and numerous stalls, there will be ‘Give it a go Row’ with Findhorn Coastal Rowers and an opportunity to see the MIRO Rescue boat, The Glynn Whitehead III, close up. A BBQ will sell burgers and hot dogs and afternoon teas will be provided by Findhorn Women’s Institute. One of the highlights of the fair is the ‘Made in Findhorn’ stall selling a wide range of products all crafted in Findhorn.
Residents’ Association member, Morag Robertson, is leading on activities for children at the Fair. Morag said: “This year there will be lots of fun activities for children to enjoy including face painting and a children’s fancy dress parade. The theme for the fancy dress parade is book characters and adults (and children) are encouraged to get their thinking caps on for their children’s fancy dress costumes! Performing artists, The Mad Hatters of Moray will be making their first visit to the Fair so look out for the hilarious Mad Hatters characters wandering around the Piers area of the village!”
Sam Russell, Chairperson of FRA said: “We are delighted to be staging the Findhorn Village Fair as the highlight of an action packed weekend. The Fair is organised for the enjoyment of both locals and summer visitors while, at the same time, offering a platform from which local groups and organisations can make themselves known. It is also the FRA’s main fundraising event of the year, enabling the FRA to improve the village environment and support local groups and good causes. Proceeds from the fair cover expenses throughout the year, such as grass cutting, floral displays, Christmas lights, repairs to the play park, public liability insurance, etc.”
Sam added: “The Findhorn Residents’ Association meets regularly in the James Milne Institute in Findhorn. Anyone wishing to attend would be very welcome. Please get in touch if you would like more information.”
