We attended the Dingwall Primary Fair on 20th June.
For the first time, Dingwall Primary School held a fair to showcase what is being offered by local community groups. It was wonderful to learn about what is on offer in Dingwall – from laughing yoga to the WI, Scouts to soccer – even a beautiful spaniel advertising puppy classes! The school kindly offered a stall to the Episcopal Churches of St. James and St. Anne, so Rev. Julia Boothby, Tracey Bruce and Laura Symon attended to share a little about our church. As we will be launching our in Children’s Choir in September, we encouraged the children to make their own musical instruments, and hope to see some of them at choir in the new school year.
