Coastal community remain cool at ‘first-class’ Village Fete

PORTGORDON RESIDENTS TURNED out for their annual village fete on Sunday perhaps slightly disappointed that the sunshine of previous days had vanished.

The warm and muggy conditions did little to deter both locals and visitors who enjoyed entertainment provided by the Buckie Pipe Band while browsing a variety of stall – and having a lot of fun along the way.

The local Co-Op store got into the spirit of the occasion by erecting their own tent alongside such as the local primary school, community newspaper ‘Portgordon Post’ and many more – and there was at least a little bit of sunshine appearing by the time the pipe band got into action.

It was also the first time that recently elected local Councillor Marc Macrae had a chance to attend with his family: “The people of Portgordon always organise first class events and provide a warm welcome to all those visiting.

“My granddaughter Emelia particularly enjoyed the musical entertainment provided by the Buckie Pipe Band. It was great to see so many people enjoy the event with even the sun making an appearance to brighten up what had been an overcast morning.

“My thanks go to all the organisers for their dedication and enthusiasm in creating a first-class family event.”
