A fund-raising fete to help support the work of a Carnoustie theatre was a big success according to the organisers.

The Dibble Tree Theatre 21st Birthday Fete was held last weekend and attracted a scores of people with fun for all the family.

There were stalls with games and activities for children, face-painting, cake and candy, a raffle, a guess the number of balloons in the car contest, a display of past Carnoustie Theatre Club productions and live performances from Carnoustie Beavers.

One of the highlights of the afternoon was pelting local figures with wet sponges at the stocks.

Carnoustie Councillor Brian Boyd, Beaver leader Kenny Lee, Scout leader Leslie Ritchie and Carnoustie Theatre Club member Ali Laing were among those who all took their turn with good cheer.

According to Betty Gibson, social convener of Carnoustie Theatre Club and one of the event organisers, a huge debt of thanks is owed to all those who took part.

She said: “Thanks to everyone who contributed in any way towards making our 21st Birthday Fete such a success.

“We raised over £1,550 as a result of your efforts. Thanks also to all of you who came along and spent their money.

“The response from our whole community has been tremendous.”

The exact total is understood to have been £1,558.49, and of that £525 was raised during the auction which rounded off the day.

Among the items on offer were a pair of theatre seats from the former Imperial German ship Homeric which have now taken up pride of place in the Titanic Pizzeria.
