Country fayre and bike ride in fund-raising drive for play park

The fund-raising campaign for a £100,000 refurbishment of Cove’s play park is being stepped up, with a country fayre being held next weekend.

The fayre in Cove Burgh Hall this Sunday (August 31), from 1pm to 4pm, will be the first in a series of fund-raising events.

And David Watt will be riding his bike from Glasgow to Edinburgh to raise sponsorship cash for Craigrownie park.

The 47-mile Pedal for Scotland cycle ride on September 7 will be the furthest that David, of Kilcreggan, has ever ridden – he will be on an exercise bike at the country fayre so that visitors can sponsor him.

“We’re both happy to support the play park so that our daughter Cara and the other kids have somewhere nice to play that is safe and fun for all ages,” said David’s wife Carolyn.

Fresh fruit and veg will be on sale at the country fayre, as well as local organic meat and eggs, home baking, crafts, jewellery by Katie Paterson, handmade gifts by Mairi Benton and a wide range of other interesting and affordable items.

Lomond ales will be available at the licensed bar to wash down burgers from Kilcreggan butcher Kevin Walker.

“There will be plenty to do and buy for the children and plenty of opportunities to donate for your local park,” said one of the organisers.

“The design of the park will be on display, so come on down and see what’s going on.”
