February – Photos and Diary Dates

Fearnan Seventy Five Years in Pictures

In the last Blog, we were able to share these 2 views of Fearnan from the south bank of the loch – one from the 1940s and one from the 1970s:

Since publishing these images, we have received four more which let us chart the development of Fearnan (as seen from the other side of the Loch) from the 1940s to the present day:

Our next event is our leap year Winter Pudding Night on Saturday February 29th, starting at 6pm. It will be another 28 years before February 29th next falls on a Saturday – and by extension, 28 years before the Fearnan Pudding Night next falls on February 29th. That’s a long time to wait – come this year.

Big Shed Concert

On Saturday 4th April at 7.30pm, The Carrivick sisters will perform at the Big Shed – and hopefully they’ll bring the spring sunshine with them!

One of the UK’s top bluegrass and folk acts,  Laura and Charlotte perform original songs and instrumentals, plus carefully chosen covers on guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, and claw-hammer banjo. They have released six albums and performed at festivals across the UK, including Glastonbury.

They also perform internationally together and with all-female bluegrass five piece Midnight Sky-racer. http://www.thecarrivicksisters.co.uk/

Tickets are £10 (£5 if in full time education:  under-5s ) and are available via wegottickets via www.wegottickets.com/event/495600/ Some tickets will be available at the door on the night

Remember to BYOB – tea, coffee and soft drinks will be available.

FVA Annual General Meeting

The FVA’s Annual General Meeting will take place on Saturday 28th March in the village hall at 16.00. All members welcome.

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.
