Carnoustie’s community hub project received a toe-tapping boost at the weekend thanks to a fund-raising ceilidh.

On Friday night the Carnoustie Golf Hotel played host to the an evening of Scottish music and ceilidh dancing organised by the Kinloch Centre Project.

Project chairman Peter Murphy was delighted with the event. He said: “It was pretty successful.

“We had a lot more people than last year. It must have been 170, 180 approximately I think.

“It certainly was a very responsive audience, they took part as you might imagine, with great energy.”

Guests danced to the tunes of the Barrack Brothers Ceilidh Band, while singers John Knox and Nick Hunter, pipers Andrew and Derek Potter, young duo Cutting Corners and dancers from the Angus Centre for Performing Arts also entertained throughout the evening.

Mr Murphy added: “The project made somewhere in the region of £1,700. It was a good night in every sense of the word.

“We got a sense that we are on a roll in terms of good publicity and we’ve got more credibility in respect of the future.

“It’s more a social event and because it’s a ceilidh night people enjoy the experience and it puts them in a good mood for coming back next year.”

On Monday evening a fund-raising pub quiz was held in the Station Hotel and at the moment plans are in motion to hold a car boot sale at the Kinloch site on April 5.
