Welcoming all to the harvest

The FOLK of Memus and the Glens are looking forward to welcoming everyone in the surrounding area to their Autumn Fair to share in the harvest and appreciate the glorious scenery.

Not only is the event a traditional sale of produce, preserves, plants and country kitchen home bake the market will present a harvest of a wide range of activities including arts, crafts and even the fruits of vintage collections for sale.

Jane Butterworth, Glens Community Hall association treasurer, said: “Memus Hall is the focus of our community, we use it throughout our lives. From mums and toddlers to film and sporting clubs, from the famous ‘Rural’ – we are home to two institutes, Memus and Cortachy – to Angus Council computer classes, and whist drives, we all come here when we need a meeting place. We want to let people see what the hall means to the community and the facilities we offer people in the wider area.”

Chairman James Arnott added: “The hall was built at the start of the new millennium, to high, modern standards and expectations. It is in a superb location for an event, a splendid, leafy, waterside setting with a first class catering kitchen and IT services. It’s an ideal place for public meetings and private functions, at very reasonable rates. Some people may be surprised to see how the village hall of old has moved on.”

Tea, coffee and home baking will be served throughout the day, with soup and crusty rolls available at lunchtime.

The Autumn Fair is to be held in Memus hall on Saturday (September 29) from 10am to 2pm.
