A PLANT sale with a difference is being held this Saturday by the Eassie, Nevay and Kirkinch Community Association.
As a result of the un-seasonally cold spring weather, the association members have given a new twist to their popular plant sale which is back by popular demand.
It will be held under the new guise of ‘Bedding and Breakfast’ as the day involves delicious bacon and egg rolls to give gardeners the strength to cope with the unusual spring weather.
This year the hall will be open for this community event from 9.30 a.m. to serve breakfast (bacon and egg rolls) with homemade soup and rolls served from 11.30 a.m.
Coffee, tea and tray bakes will also be on sale in the cafe.
The local Red Cross collectors are trialling a raffle to be held at the event instead of door to door collecting this year and Eassie School is running its popular tombola for school funds and trips.
Guest stall-holders include The Soap Lady with soap and things, Ruralreads specialising in gardening, hobby and country pursuit books, the National Trust Angus Members Centre with a large and well stocked plant stall and Kitchen Garden Delights of Blairgowrie with preserves, loaves and gluten free breads.
ENKCA is fund-raising by running their popular cafe as well as selling produce, plants, snowdrops ‘in the green’, surprise seeds and a secondhand rose stall.
Donations for stalls and volunteers to help are always appreciated.
The main hall will have an assortment of interesting stalls with free admission.
The ENKCA project this year is to landscape the area around the new hall to provide not only an attractive community area but to provide the perfect photo shoot footing for the growing number of weddings being held at the versatile venue.
Landscape plans will be on show for the community and friends to view.
It may have been a cold and difficult spring for gardeners to cope with but, if they go along to the Bedding and Breakfast at Eassie hall, a warm welcome and sociable day out is promised.
