A short Service of Remembrance was held at the Fearnan War Memorial on Sunday 13th November. The service was led by Shirley Shearer, who is an elder at Kenmore Church, and the wreaths were laid by Ewan Weir and Alastair Grier.
After the service, the Village Association served coffee and home baking in the Hall.
The Book Club
The Book Club continues to thrive. At the last session there was a robust discussion about His Bloody Project, by Graeme Macrae Burnet. The book, which reached the Man Booker Prize Shortlist, prompted a range of different feelings and opinions on the characters and events, and the length of the sustained discussion indicated how involved and engaged everyone had been with this book.
This month’s book is Rise by Karen Campbell. It is set in an ancient landscape in Kilmacarra, a fictional village in the Highlands of Scotland, and is a novel about faith, freedom and finding your place in the world. However, the book may (or may not) be discussed at this month’s meeting, which takes the form of a Christmas meal for members at the Townhouse in Aberfeldy on the 14th December.
Other books selected for future meetings are:
Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradel.
Nutshell by Ian McEwen
These Foolish Things by Deborah Moggach
The date of the next meeting and the order of reading the books are to be confirmed as the Club are keen to maximise attendance by not clashing with other club/society meetings.
Sadly, the Cow Park owners have decided to withdraw the current offer of sale to the community. Many thanks to all who have contributed time and effort and especially the members of the Steering Group for their research and information-gathering to date.
Mulled Wine and Mince Pies
Christmas is rapidly approaching and the FVA’s annual Mulled Wine and Mince Pies event will take place in the Hall on Saturday 3rd December between 15.00 and 17.00. The cost is £5 pp and a donation to the Village Hall funds will be made from the takings at the door.
Join us for an early taste of Christmas, before the seasonal stress sets in! Everyone is welcome and we hope to see you there!
