Musical entertainment was provided by the Saturday Singers, a ladies choir who were very well received.

A fantastic buffet was provided by The Community Cafe and there wasn’t a crust to be seen afterwards. It also was an opportunity to bring our many committed volunteers from across the community together for some food, fun and entertainment to say thank you for everything they do helping Ferguslie flourish.

The event was part-funded by the Tannyversary Fund as part of last year’s 25th Anniversary Celebrations.
