Development Group to run Christmas Fayre

THE CARNOUSTIE Development Group has taken over the running of the Christmas Fayre from the Business Association, which closed earlier in the year.

Peter Burke, chairman, said: “We are pleased to continue what has now become a firm fixture in Carnoustie at Christmas time. In addition to the usual 40 or so stalls in the three halls on Saturday, December 1, we have been invited by Carnoustie Community Council to hold a mini-fayre on the evening of November 30, when the lights and tree ceremony will be held next to the War Memorial.

“We hope to have half a dozen or so stalls, plus hot food available from mobile vendors and the local shops. This is a great example of the two organisations working together to promote the town for both residents and visitors alike.”

Application forms for both the Friday and Saturday fayres are available from the Fobel Shop, Park Avenue, or via e-mail at

The group has published a new 16-page brochure packed with facts, and interesting things to see and do in the Carnoustie area.

Mr Burke explained: “The tourism sub-committee, consisting of development group members, accommodation providers, golf clubs, the Carnoustie Links, and our Angus Council local community planning team, has worked long and hard to produce this splendid brochure.

“Copies have been distributed to our local accommodation providers and are also available in Carnoustie Library, the Access office on High Street, and from the Fobel Shop.”
