The Carnoustie Gala Committee already has plenty planned for this winter to keep people’s minds off the terrible weather.
First up is the pumpkin and turnip carving competition which will take place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 30.
The competition will take place in McConnell Gardens with prizes for the best pumpkins and turnips.
This will be followed on Saturday, November 2, with a coffee and pancake morning at 10 a.m. in the Philip Hall. Entry is £1.50 payable at the door.
The popular annual Guy Fawkes competition will also take place that day and is open to clubs, pubs, organisations and individuals.
Judging will take place at 10.30 a.m. and participants should note that no toxic materials should be used in the construction of their Guy. There will be prizes for the best junior and senior entries.
Later that day at 6.30 p.m. the annual torchlight parade will depart from Woodlands Primary School, Queen Street, at 6.30 p.m. sharp.
Torches are available from the Fobel Shop on Park Avenue, priced £3. All torchbearers must be in position at Woodlands by 6.15 p.m.
