St Fillans Festive Weekend

St Fillans Festive Weekend
St Fillans Festive WeekendAug 17th - Aug 18th | Playing Fields St Fillans

2019 is upon us and the Festive Committee has already met to begin planning for the upcoming Festive Weekend. This has been scheduled for weekend of 17 and 18 August so please put that into your calendars right away. 

In 2019, we would like to increase the size of the Festive Committee with one or two additional volunteers. This is for two reasons. Quite obviously it will reduce the load on individuals within the Committee, but just as important, it will support a succession plan to ensure a continued flow of new ideas and enthusiasm. If you are interested, please contact me or any of the Committee Members (Ruth, Ulrika, Gordon, Pete and Norman).

Finally, the Village needs to replace 2 important items of equipment. You will all remember the Bottle Cooler and small Chest Freezer which have been present for years behind the bar in the Festive Weekend marquee. Sadly, the Chest Freezer has died and has been scrapped. That must be replaced. The Bottle Cooler is still working, but its thermostat is suspect and on its way out. In addition, last year, we lost half a dozen bottles of wine when a shelf collapsed. Rather, than simply purchase second hand units, I thought we should first ask whether anyone has access to (directly or via contacts) similar units which are still operational, but about to be put out to grass. 

Thanks in advance for your assistance in both matters!
