Findhorn Residents’ Association (FRA) is organising the annual village fair which, after a two year break due to the Covid pandemic, will return on Sunday July 17 from 1-4pm at the piers.

FRA chairman Sam Russell is delighted the event is making a return.

He explained: "The fair is the main source of income for the FRA. Proceeds usually cover expenses throughout the year, such as grass cutting, floral displays, Christmas lights, repairs to the play park, public liability insurance, etc.

"The pandemic led to the necessary cancellation for the last two summers so our funds are severely depleted.

"Our volunteers have put in a huge amount of effort in planning the 2022 fair to ensure that there will be entertainment for all ages and we are looking forward to welcoming lots of residents and visitors."

There will be live music throughout the afternoon and, in addition to a £50 raffle prize, wheel of fortune and numerous stalls, there will be 'Give it a go Row' with Findhorn Coastal Rowers and an opportunity to see MIRO rescue boat, The Glynn Whitehead III, up close.

A barbecue will also be available and afternoon teas will be provided by Findhorn Women’s Institute.

FRA member, Morag Robertson, is leading on activities for children.

She said: "There will be lots of fun activities including face painting and a children’s fancy dress parade. The theme for the parade is ‘Under the Sea!’ and adults (and children) are encouraged to get their thinking caps on for their children’s fancy dress costumes.

"Bubbles the Clown, who has been really popular with children at previous Findhorn fairs, will be also visiting once again."

The FRA meets regularly in the James Milne Institute. Anyone wishing to attend is welcome.
