Last Saturday afternoon’s Mulled Wine and Mince Pies was a very convivial event, with some 35 villagers gathering in the village hall for some pre-Christmas cheer and chat.
There was also an chance to meet some new Fearnan residents – Linda and Alistair in Taronga, Lesley and John in Brambles (formerly Am Fasgadh) and Rosalind and Nick in Tigh Na Clachan.
Welcome to you all – we wish you every happiness living in Fearnan and hope to see you at future events.
Many thanks to all those who helped organise the afternoon. The event raised £137.05 for Aberfeldy Community Hospital. (For the record, the 5p was found on the floor and added to the takings!) This sum will be added to funds raised by the Hall Committee which means that a very useful sum will be presented to the hospital.
November saw the annual Remembrance Service at the Fearnan Memorial. There was a good turnout this year, and two wreaths were laid.
Our picture is of Frank Hughes laying a wreath on behalf of Councillor Mike Williamson, as Mike was unable to attend all of the services that take place on his patch.
Last week’s storm was unusually severe, but fortunately Fearnan escaped relatively unscathed. Whilst the Douthwaites lost a tree, they gained a boat – found wedged between the rhododendrons and the fence by the wind!
The next FVA event to put into your diary is the world-famous Fearnan Pudding Night on the 15th February. Don’t miss it! More puds in one place than you’ll ever see anywhere else, ever!
