It’s Christmaaaaas – almost!

Mulled Wine & Mince Pies

The recommended dress code for our recent Mulled Wine and Mince Pies event was Christmas jumpers.  We certainly got Christmas jumpers – and Christmas socks, Christmas aprons, Christmas braces, Christmas headgear, a Christmas onesie and a green elf (or an elf in green, to be more exact). Clearly, dressing up boxes had been well and truly raided!

 

The hall was full of pre-Christmas cheer, and all in all, it was a warm and happy event.  The mulled wine slipped down a treat and, along with the mince pies, there were lots of Christmas-themed sweet treats to eat.  No pics of the food this time – the people were definitely the star attraction!

 

Something from the Fearnan Archive ……

Holiday brochures provide a pleasant distraction at this time of year.  What better way to counter the cold wind and snow and ice outside than to plan your summer vacation?

Some 50 or 60 years ago, would be holiday makers might have been considering a week in Fearnan, staying at the Tigh-an-Loan Hotel –

For those too young to know the decimal equivalent, dinner cost from 75p, breakfast was 35p, and lunch was 58p.  Bed and Breakfast? £1.75. Those were the days!

First Event in 2019

The FVA’s first social event of 2019 will be our world-famous Winter Pudding Night. Yes, it’s nearly that time of year again!  Choc-aholics, pudding fanciers, and all those born with a sweet tooth will be making their way to Fearnan Village Hall on the 23rd February at 6pm for this celebration of deliciousness. There are usually round about  30 puddings on offer. You don’t have to try them all (although some do!) but why not join us and come and taste a few?

And Finally ……..

It’s Happy Christmas from all of us, and from these 2 seasonal garden visitors.
