The annual Corrie Church fete was once again a triumph for community endeavour, both for the large number of volunteers who manned the stalls and for the large number of community members who visited the fete to support the cause.

The fete took place in the Corrie and Sannox Village Hall where visitors made the most of the sunshine by enjoying coffee, tea and cakes in the outdoor garden seating area.

Indoors the usual fun attractions drew in the crowds, foremost the extensive array of homebaking to enjoy with the refreshments, and secondly the convivial atmosphere enjoyed by the visitors.

In addition to the tombola, book, plant, bric-a-brac, home baking and jewellery stores was the popular silent auction which always attracts a good crowd and interest.

For those with a more substantial appetite, a barbeque provided them with everything needed and did a roaring trade in the garden, as did the plant stall.

The Corrie Church fete is entirely manned by volunteers each year and all funds raised goes towards the running costs of the church.
