Auchenblae Village Hall will be transformed into a festive Christmas Market tomorow (Friday).

The market will be open from 6.30 until 9.30pm and is being hosted by Auchenblae Pre-School Group.

The group is organising a relaxed and welcoming seasonal market to make Christmas shopping easier for locals and help boost group finances.

Around 30 stalls will offer a great range of Christmas gifts and treats, including treatments and beauty products from PamperZone, winter clothing courtesy of Thistle Kids as well as chocolates and Christmas wreaths, vintage and handmade jewellery, books, toys, cards and much more.

There will be a raffle of items generously donated by local businesses, villagers and stall holders. Mulled wine, hot chocolate and mince pies will be included in the £3.50 entry fee.

Chairman, Amy Whittet, said “We’re looking forward to a great night, supporting local businesses and charities including Auchenblae Pre-School Group and giving locals a chance to do a bit of stress-free Christmas shopping.

“It’s exciting to be able to put on an event that offers a great service to the community, helping small businesses and allowing us to invest in resources for our pre-school group. It’s also lovely to be able to welcome visitors to see our newly refurbished playroom so do join us for a mug of mulled wine.”
