Preparations are well under way for Methlick’s harvest fair next month.

A host of activities are planned for the event, which will be held in the village’s Beaton Hall on Saturday, October 4.

All proceeds from the fair - from 1-5pm - will go to the local parish church.

Methlick minister, the Rev Will Stalder, said villagers were eagerly looking forward to the event.

He added: “There will be something for everyone at the fair.

“A lot of hard work is going into the preparations and volunteers are making a great effort to have everything ready for the day.”

The fair will have a farmers’ harvest market stall, home baking and gardening sales table.

An arty crafty section will feature home made crafts, paintings, photographs, postcards, sewing and knitting.

Visitors can also browse around book and toy stalls, bric a brac and bring and buy.

The programme will also include a kids’ competition - 12 and under can design a person or animal out of a potato; 13-16 year olds can design a scarecrow less than 18 inches high.

Organisers are inviting people to have an early spring clean and sell no longer needed goods at a car boot sale.

There will be room for seven “boots” at £10 a pitch.

A tearoom will offer teas, coffees and bakes at £2.50 per adult.

Entry to the fair is free and further details are available from Katherine Storey on 01651 806691, Lady Joanna Aberdeen 01651 806897 or Valerie Mitchell 01651 806005.
