Spring at Last?

IMG_4258The beautiful sunny Spring weather attracted a very IMG_4260sociable group, including some new and lots of familiar faces, to the Coffee Morning on Tuesday. There seemed to be smiles all round in the sunshine.

IMG_4251We enjoyed a delicious spread of goodies.  This time there were savouries, sausage rolls, scones, chocolate fudge cake, apple IMG_4249and almond cake and more, along with a selection of coffees and teas. There was not much left by the end!

There was also an opportunity to have a look at the Fearnan Archive that Ian McGregor has been assembling on behalf of the village residents.

Seen on the left, here, it contains a wealth of material and information about Fearnan from its earliest days, including maps from 1590 onwards, old photographs, the School Logbook, census records, documents and old records relating to people and buildings in Fearnan,  and much more.

The Archive will eventually reside in the village hall, so that it can be accessed and consulted by all.

IMG_4243Further along the loch, Spring can also be detected in the fact that here’s been an explosion of primroses on the hill in the  area of Boreland Wood that was felled recently.

You can see them from the track that runs through the area, but the best views on a recent visit in the evening were on the way back, walking up the track towards the road.

About Fearnan Village Association

Fearnan Village Association was formed in 2007 to provide a means through which those who live in the village can come together to discuss and respond to issues of importance to the village, particularly those that will have an impact on our quality of life. We also organise social events, such as the very popular Pudding Night in February, Strawberry TeaZ in July, and other events and coffee mornings throughout the year.
