On Saturday 3rd December Maybole’s Greenside hosted a day of festive fun for the families of the area!
‘Carrick Loves Christmas’ was the first event of its kind and was brought to you by Maybole Community Council in partnership with North Carrick Community Benefit Company and NorthCarrick.com, with funding from Scotland’s Towns Partnership and Thriving Communities – Carrick Team.
Children enjoyed a free shot on the jet ride, as well as face painting, balloon models, and lots of crafts to try in the marquee! Local groups had stalls with activities including Community Wellbeing Hub, Girlguiding Carrick District, Maybole Regeneration, Community Learning Development, The Carrick Centre, and St Cuthbert’s Primary Parents Committee.
Everyone enjoyed hearing the three primary school choirs perform, as well as local singers, Becca Cameron, and Sian Clark. The wonderful sound of Maybole Pipe Band rang out around the square, and later we were entertained by the Dalrymple Ukulele Orchestra. The Burns Bachelors Performers also made us laugh with their funny festive poems.
The event organiser would like to thank everyone who supported the event! There is a survey live on social media now to get feedback for putting on future events! Check out @northcarricknow on Facebook and Instagram.
