A North-east flower committee are looking forward to holding a fundraiser later this month.

The Tarves Flower Committee have organised a concert which will see the Ythan Fiddlers and dancers take to the stage.

It will be held to in Melvin Hall in Tarves on Friday October 24 at 7 for 7.30pm to raise funds for the group.

Committee member and treasurer Norma Dougall told the Times: “ I have seen the Ythan Fiddlers perform before and they are very good.”

Norma joined the group after she was called in for help by her neighbour and chairperson Sheila Ewan,

She added: “I moved to Tarves around 8 years ago from Dunfermline. I did the minutes at the community committee then 4-5 years ago Sheila asked if I could help out with teas at the hall because some people were off on holiday.

“I’ve been doing it ever since - then one day I was committee member and treasurer!”

Tickets for the fundraiser are £5 which includes tea and home made goodies.

There will be a raffle and donations would be greatly appreciated, Tickets are available to buy on the door or from Sheila Ewan by calling on 01651 851766.
