Methlick’s Autumn Harvest Fair raised over £1500 for church funds recently.

Organised by the Stewardship Team at Methlick Parish Church the event aimed to encourage fellowship and raise much-needed funds for the daily running of the church.

Member Katherine Storey said that the team would like to express a heart-felt thank you to all helpers.

Katherine told the Times: “We couldn’t possibly have managed by ourselves! We asked various people to take charge of different stalls and aimed to raise at least one thousand pounds on the day. The turnout was very good despite the weather not being great.

“We definitely also benefited from having our event just after the Soup and Pudding Lunch by Cairnorrie WRI in the adjacent Scout Hall. Hopefully we also boosted their numbers by visiting them too, we both promoted each other’s events!”

The Farmer’s Stall proved most popular with its range of potatoes, carrots, turnips, courgettes, local salad leaves, eggs, jams and rapeseed oil. The baking and craft/gardening stall, the Tea Room and farmer’s stall all raised around £300 each.

Katherine added: “There was a lot of organising but having raised £1747 on the day it was well worth while.

“We are already thinking that we may repeat this type of event again next year, watch this space!”
