SUNDAY might not have proved too successful for Andy Murray but the community at Isle of Whithorn welcomed locals and visitors alike to a very successful Hamefairin.

There were stalls selling everything from cheese to cupcakes, wood turning to pottery and plenty more. The weather was kind and performances by the Creetown Silver Band, the West Coast Stompers Line Dancers and the Tai Chi group who meet in the village hall were much enjoyed as was a display of local Classic cars. The wildlife ranger led guided walks for children and everyone was well fed with cream teas, a barbeque, pancakes hot off the girdle, homemade soup, ice-cream, beer and soft drinks available.

The event is a real team effort by many members of the local community led by Isle Futures and this was especially appreciated by stallholders such as Anthea from Borgue Books who particularly sought out one of the committee to compliment them on their organisation.
