The annual Feein’ Market will take place in Stonehaven tomorrow in the town hall and Market Square.
The event is run by the Stonehaven and District Lions Club who have been at the helm for the past 17 years.
Things get underway in the square at 9.45am with a display by Stonehaven Pipe Band followed at 10am by the opening ceremony.
This year the Feein’ Market will be opened by Kelsey Stewart. Kelsey has recently returned from Australia where she was part of the Commonwealth Games Scottish Team. The Lions will make a donation to Kelsey to assist with her future training.
The pipe band will play again at 4pm to bring the Feein’ Market to a close.
The Lions will make a series of donations throughout the day supporting local efforts.
This year their focus will be supporting local schools. They will be making donations to Carronhill Playground Fund, Dunnottar Primary School Playground project and donations to both Arduthie and Mill O Forest Primary Schools PTA’s. They will also continue to support Mackie Academy Project – including Rock Challenge, Mock Trails and Pupil Gap Year Volunteering Projects.
