Kirriemuir Round Table had a real treat in store for the community recently when they provided the biggest bonfire and fireworks display in the town in recent times.

And topping the bonfire was an excellent Guy made by the local Beaver Group.

Revellers were also treated to music from local band, The Blend, and local artist Just Katie. Alongside all of this was soup, hotdogs and refreshments provided by local volunteers supported by the Kirriemuir Scout Group.

The event is one of the last independent events of its kind in Scotland and draws heavily on local support.

Russell Williams, Round Table event co-ordinator, said: “This year we spent almost £3,000 on the event, something only made possible by the hard work of the guys in Round Table fund-raising through the year, sponsorship and the support of local businesses who contribute firewood and fencing.

“In this regard, we’d like to thank SeaRoc for their financial donation, J.D. Wilkie, TWC Aitchison & Sons, GS Robertson and Fletcher Joinery & Property Maintenance for firewood, as well as Bill Milne for fencing.”

The Round Table’s next local community events will be at the switch-on of the town’s Christmas lights where Santa’s Sleigh will be out and about.

Round Table is open to all men aged between 18 and 45 and membership provides a selection of social and community service-related opportunities for its members.It is a non-religious, non-political, and non-sectarian organisation which draws its membership from all parts of the community.

Kirremuir Round Table meets on the first and third Thursdays of the month and further information about joining or getting involved in the organisation is available from Russell Williams on 01575 573961, or by e-mailing
