A SUCCESSFUL spring fayre was held in aid of Lochies School at the weekend.

There was a good turnout for the event at Sauchie Parish Church Hall on Saturday, April 22.

Between 10am and 2pm, those who headed along had the opportunity to peruse a variety of stalls.

Organised by the school's parent council, it was part of a campaign to raise money for a new, modified mini-bus for the youngsters.

According to Marion Riddell, who is a member of the team, they were happy with how it went.

She said: “We were really pleased. We were reasonably busy and we managed to raise over £700 which was fantastic – a great amount for the school.

“We were kept going all day really, for four hours, there was a lot of support – it was lovely.

“We were really delighted with how it went.”

On the day there were stalls with delicious home-baking, a tombola, beauty items and arts and crafts.

There was also spring plants and games, while children had the opportunity to get colourful with face-painting.

A total of around £10,000 is needed in order to fund the purchase of a new vehicle and a range of activities have already taken place.

The total is sitting at around £2335 and more events will be planned further down the line.

Thanks is given to those who showed support during the spring fayre and to the church for lending organisers the hall.
