Another successful fun day

Kirriemuir was blessed with a beautiful sunny day for the second annual community fun day hosted by the Strathmore Christian Fellowship (SCF).

Held at the Webster’s Sports Centre the fun day was jointly funded by an Angus Council grant and the SCF.



And it turned out to be a great success once again when around 600 local people turned up throughout the day.

There were activities to suit everyone including the Factory Skatepark’s mobile skatepark, a 40ft climbing wall, a bouncy castle, sumo suits, gyro swings and a bucking bronco.

Visitors also made the most of the free barbecue.

There were a number of displays from Angus Falconry and there was music for all with a live DJ, Forfar Pipe Band and street drummers all getting into the spirit of the event.

Once again the community showed great support with a number of stalls and local services and businesses all taking part.

The event was formally opened at 12 p.m. by Councillor Jeanette Gaul following on from two sets by the Street Drummers and the Forfar Pipe Band.

Derek Marshall, spokesman for the SCF, said: “The event is designed to build bridges and provide a forum for families and the wider community to come together and enjoy themselves.

“Last year’s event was a great success and as a result it was decided to make this an annual event.

“Next year’s event will be based around the Commonwealth Games and as such will have a sporting theme.”
