Directors of Xcite Media Ltd - Gavin Esselmont and Darren Ross and organisers of the dedicated children’s show are delighted to have successfully delivered their newest event.

Financial advisor, Phil Anderson has called for more local firms in the town to take part in the event.

He said: “We had a very enjoyable time at the Scottish Kids Show and it would be great to see more Ellon-based businesses attend next year’s event.

“We had a steady stream of visitors to our stand and it was great to speak to people about life cover, school fee planning and other areas where we can help.

“The show was a big success and we will be busy following up on the new enquiries we received from the show.”

Officially opened on Saturday, June 28, by Aberdeen’s Lord Provost, the event saw it’s 4500th visitor walk through the doors just before it finished at 5pm on Sunday.
