People queued out in the drizzle to get into Carradale Guild’s annual summer fair, which was held in the village hall.
Inside was a range of traditional coffee evening treats, including a raffle, a tombola, guess the number of sweets in the jar, guess the weight of the cake, a treasure hunt, a bottle stall, a plant sale, a bric a brac table, and a baking stall that was so crowded the Courier’s reporter couldn’t even get a look!
The evening was opened by guest of honour Marilyn Shedden, who was introduced on stage by Guild member Una Semple, who said: ‘To my knowledge, Marilyn was the first lady moderator of the presbytery of Argyll, and she has done a lot of work in that capacity.’
Ms Shedden, who finished her post as moderator in June, said: ‘I was privileged to serve in that role, I met a lot of people and got to visit a lot of churches – and in that time, I’ve never been on a stage with a spotlight!
‘It’s lovely to be here, to support a very worthy cause. I can’t wait to get down and spend my money.’
After she officially opened events, Marilyn was presented with a beautiful basket of flowers by Zoe Macalister Hall.
