A great day was had by all at St Bridgets Hall in Stonehaven on Saturday 12th November at the Winter Fete/coffee morning to raise funds for the East of Scotland Support Group.  The sun shone, and the crowds turned up to view the stunning stalls which reflected the many hours of work put into them.  Because of the success of the day, Kerrey and Paula are already thinking about the next one, possibly in the spring next year.  Below are a couple of photos taken on the day.
