Crafters group Nimble Fingers had its very own piper welcoming visitors to its most recent craft fair.

The rousing bagpipe music, courtesy of John McGeachy, helped keep customers coming in droves to the Campbeltown Town Hall event on Saturday.

Proceeds were donated to local Rainbows, Brownies and Guides, some of whom helped to run the tombola. There was also a raffle, and teas and coffees, with freshly baked pancakes and homemade cream scones.

A spokesperson said: ‘Nimble Fingers would like to thank everyone for making the craft fair in the town hall so successful.

‘Everyone had a wonderful day – it was fantastic having John McGeachy playing the pipes.

‘Nimble Fingers crafters were there in full force as always and Bobby Cairns, as usual, went the extra mile.

‘We had a full compliment of crafters, and they all want to come back in November to our next one.

‘A huge thank you again to everyone for their kindness and support.’
