Society hosts Spring Fair

The Buchanhaven Heritage Society are celebrating after a great success at their spring fair themed to “Pirates and Princesses”.

The Princesses provided by Simply Events and Pirates from their own society members delighted everyone who attended on the day.

In addition to this year’s theme were a range of crafters within the Centre and for the first time a bouncy castle to provide some outside fun for those keen to keep active.

A real interest for all arriving at the Centre was the “Smugglers Inn” where a treasure chest, skulls, anchors and other pirate artefacts awaited the young princesses and bucanners eager to take part in the event.

With blue skies above, a rather chilly day did not dampen the crowds spirit arriving at the Centre and for a while queues had to form to gain entry to the Centre.

Alex Geddes chair of the society said: “ Although part of our annual Spring Craft Fair the theme this year seems to have caught the imagination of the community and especially the young and this is what we are all about, supporting the young within our community as well as the not so young.

“We were delighted with the volume of community support on the day and as the developments within the Centre continue we hope this will steadily grow and encourage many others to visit our beautiful area.”

Alex added: “We are now looking at events to deliver in the second half of the year and already discussing the Christmas events to come, however over May we are taking a short break from events to focus on our strategic direction and ensure we are still on track to delivering our community action plan which was supported by the local community.

“Our “Identity Project” is now well underway and we hope to make some significant announcements very soon about our Centre and events to come.”
