If the recent spell of warm spring weather inspires you to get out into the countryside, head for Memus and the Glens’ Spring Fair.

The event is to be staged at Memus Hall this Saturday from 10 am until 2 pm - offering a range of produce, crafts and home bakes accompanied by refreshments, including morning coffee and scones, and ‘soup and roll’ lunches.

Entry is by donation.

Memus and the Glens Hall committee treasurer, Jane Butterworth, said: “We have booked in a good range of stalls – well known local traders and some new, fresh faces as well as a number of local charities taking fund-raising stalls.

“The countryside really is springing into life again after the long, dreich winter we’ve had; it’s a joy to travel along our roads and see the trees bursting into life and the lambs and calves in the fields.

“It would make a lovely run to come out to Memus for a coffee or a light lunch.”

Stalls on offer include Carol Mungall’s Cottage Creation handbags, Jean Robertson’s jewellery, Gail Renwick’s cakes and traybakes, Catriona Smith’s crafts, Margaret Fleming’s painted pottery, Jim Russell’s jewellery and hair accessories, Donna Leslie’s home produce and rural reads and threads’ books, plants and pretties.

Local charities which will benefit from stalls at the event are Brechin Flower show, Memus & Fern SWRI cake and candy, Mountain Animal Sanctuary, Kirrie Day Care and Tannadice Beavers.
