Letham Victorian market

THE village of Letham will step back in time this Sunday when the annual Victorian Market is staged.

This year, organisers have a wider cross community involvement than in previous years.

As well as the usual stalls in The Square, there will be entertainment, music, dancing and displays throughout the day.

Sure to be a popular event is a professional traditional Punch and Judy show.

Organisers are hoping visitors will take part in the games and activities available, with the Village Stocks promising to provide endless fun.

The Park Improvement Group has taken on the organisation of volunteers for the stocks and they already have some prominent locals volunteering. Refreshments will be available all day - the ever-popular spit roast pig will be cooked in time for lunch or, as an alternative this year, traditional fish and chips will be on sale.

All stall-holders and pedlars will be in costume and will be judged and prizes will be given.

The Feuars’ Hall will house displays and activities showing the extensive plans and activities that the community is involved with at present. The youth drop-in centre at The Basement and the Feuars’ Community are heavily involved in the plans for upgrading the Feuars’ Hall for the use of the whole community.
