Its that time of year again where we shut the gardens to give the grounds a rest before the excitement of spring next year. After such a rough October with the wind and rain, i think the garden will be grateful for a rest. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year and to see how the new front edging plants flourish near the car park.
The sun is still with us, so fingers crossed for a good day on Sunday. Lots of preparation are under way for this weekends fete. There are soup and sandwich lunches 12- 1.45 afternoon teas 2.15 – 4 or when there all gone ! In the front garden we also have lots of games for kids and adults like welly wanging, football target game, obstacle course and a vortex game, hook a duck, lucky dip and much more. Along with the usual bottle stall, cake stall, steam train and die cast models and music from the boogies. There might even be a few new treats this year! It’s a cash only event so lots of change is needed!
So excited, plans are underway for this years games and activities, bottles are being collected and cakes and soup recipes looked out.

Perfect weather accompanied the return of the Ardchattan Priory Fete on Sunday 31st July. Games, Lucky Dip, Bottle Stall and singing from The Boogies all took place on the front lawn and lunches and afternoon teas were provided from the Hall. The event raised generous funds to help support local Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. Next year we plan to hold it earlier, on the 11th June. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year.
