Fair patrons swelter in the sun

All roads led to the centre of Monifieth on Sunday for the burgh’s annual Mediaeval Fair.

Brilliant sunshine drew in the crowds and one of the organisers, George Mitchelson, thought that as many as 3,000 people had visited during the course of the day.

The programme featured entertainment designed to cater for every interest and Angus Provost Helen Oswald gave her official seal of approval when she opened the event at about 2 p.m.

Prior to that, young pipers from both Monifieth BB Pipe Band and Carnoustie and District Pipe Band had provided a stirring medley to get the show underway. There was a display by Egyptian belly dancers and a Zumba display.

The Wilma Tolmie Dancers also exhibited their prowess and further dance entertainment was provided by a group of Irish Dancers.

An exempt dog show proved popular, as did the Bonnie Babies competition which was held in the lounge of the Crown Inn.

As proceedings drew to a close the local 4Real Band presented their own brand of music.
