May Coffee Morning

IMG_8262Coffee Mornings have resumed now that the repair work in the hall has been completed.  Last Tuesday, which was a fine Spring morning, saw a good turnout of 20 or so folk from the village who came to enjoy a chat with friends and neighbours. As usual, there was a good selection of home baking on offer which disappeared pretty quickly.

 

IMG_8276 (2)Our usual coffee-supremo is not so well at the moment. (Hope you start feeling better soon, Laurie!) However, Fraser very kindly volunteered to serve the teas and coffees and was instantly promoted from back-room duties (where he’s a regular washer-upper) to front-line coffee duties. Many thanks, Fraser, much appreciated by all.

We were pleased to welcome a visitor: Fiona Johnstone, who is a Community Engagement Worker with Perth & Kinross Association of Voluntary Service (PKAVS).

 

PKAVS is a charity that has been helping people and families across Perth & Kinross for many years. They aim to respond to changing community needs and also promote volunteering and citizenship among people of all ages. Fiona is working in the area surrounding Glen Lyon and Kenmore to build a picture of people’s concerns about community issues (including health) and the extent to which the services and activities in the local area meet the community’s needs. She is keen to develop an open line of communication so that we can both feed our viewpoint into the community planning process as well as receive feedback on the options that are under consideration.

Fiona chatted to a number of people at the coffee morning and will also attend the one in June. She can be contacted by email anytime at Fiona.johnstone@pkavs.org.uk and would love to hear from you if there are community service issues that you are concerned about and would like to discuss with her.

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.
