On the Capers

CARNOUSTIE Canine Capers were pleased to receive a cheque from the For Carnoustie project last week.

At the presentation ceremony in the Carnoustie Golf Hotel on Thursday For Carnoustie presented Heather Fraser and Flora Cairnie, founding members of the steering group, with a cheque to continue their work.

The money will be used to promote the Green Dog Walkers initiative and a proposed dog management training course.

Angus Council’s Community Grant Scheme will support the course and an information event will be held soon.

There was also a table top sale recently in the Philip Hall organised by treasurer Yvonne Low which raised £147.

A spokesperson said: “This money enables us to run the group and purchase new resources for our displays and information stalls.

“It also goes to the purchase of free poo bags which Heather Fraser distributes on an ongoing basis to shops and businesses around town.

“Thanks to all those who took a stall, handed in bric-a-brac, the volunteers who knitted or sewed, made cards, baked or helped on the day.”

Leftover bric-a-brac was donated to For Carnoustie.

The next event for Canine Capers is a family orientated talk from Therapets, 7 to 9 p.m., Wednesday, November 21, at the Panmure Centre, Kinloch Street.
