The first ever Corrie Food Festival proved to be a runaway success on Saturday.

The event was a collective effort by the Arran Supper Club, Mara Fish Bar and Deli, Ferghan Mhor Vegan B & B in Sannox and The Sandwich Station. And as well as a vast array of food there were also drinks to sample, including Arran whisky and gin, and Arran craft products on sale.

As a first event it was held as a trial run, but that did not stop a queue of people outside Corrie and Sannox Hall at 12noon waiting for it to open and by 4pm all the food was gone.

One of the organisers told the Banner: ‘To be honest we never imagined it would be so busy and we’re delighted it was received so well by locals and visitors. We did the first one as a sort of test run but there’s obviously a demand for it so for anyone that missed out we’ll be doing another one in the near future.’

The day made a small profit which will be donated to the Arran food bank.
