What a lovely community day it was on Saturday at Melness food and craft fair. There was such a great vibe all afternoon.
So much hard work and community spirit goes on in getting an event like this together, which is so rewarding when you see the buzz of everyone enjoying the day.
The hall was packed all afternoon, Steve was great behind our Stall, (The Woodlife way handmade wood crafts), not least because he was actually tall enough to see over the stand! and Bruiser was not so much keeping a watchful eye on the stall as sleeping right in the way so that you had to stand astride him!
Jumping goats dairy were there with their amazing hand made artisan cheeses from their free range goat herd. Click on the cheese to go their Facebook page.
Fiona Macfarlanes brought her Lighthouse Crafts from Strathy point lighthouse, what an incredible workplace.
The old shop at Melness. Brought some beautiful crafts tweeds and throws etc. Don’t forget to call in when you are in the area, next door to Tommy’s (Melness post office and shop)
Karen and Vince homegrown Skinnet gardens fruit, veg and Jams (mostly sold out by the time I took the Photo).
Multi talented Riona was painting faces, not just of the children!
As always the baking table was a great hit, you just cant beat all those home baked cakes. Sadly my photo’s started late into the event and so many of the cakes had already been sold! We did manage to secure an amazing apricot cake though just in time.
Kirsteen has been Riona’d
This is just a snippet of a great event, there were also cards, knitting, tom bola, raffle and what with fresh strawberries and cream teas too, who could ask for more. A great day was had by all. Well done everyone.x
