Cruden Bay’s talent keeps shining!

CRUDEN Bay youngsters have certainly shown that the village has great stage talent.

The village hosted its eighth talent show at the end of April - with the event going from strength to strength.

Organiser Sarah Morrison, who has been inspired by dance since the age of four, generates huge enthusiasm which is passed onto the village youngsters.

Sarah directed the dancers and singers with a small team of helpers, with this year’s show being generously sponsored by Cruden Bay Junior Football Club and Kininmonth Cabs.

With the entire community being encouraged to be part of the show, it certainly helped the youngsters of the village to be active, and to develop their talents.

This year’s show held in the village hall showed how hard the youngsters of Cruden Bay have been working on developing their singing and dancing routines.

Organisers have thanked Ronnie’s Disco for providing the sound and music, Peter Farr for the lighting, and also Kerri Scott, Charlene Watson and Michelle Cunningham for their support to Sarah in directing the youngsters.

More than £660 was raised on the evening, part of which was donated to Sense Scotland which works with children and adults who have communication and support needs.

Sarah Woodley, local manager for Cruden Bay, was presented with a cheque by Sarah, on behalf of the youngsters.

To add to the sense of achievement for the youngsters’ efforts, a disco and meal will be organised at a later date.

The show is proving just how much talent can be generated by a small village. It is hoped that a follow on dance/singing group may be formed, to meet on a weekly basis to give as much youngsters as possible a focus and emphasis on directing their “own show”.
