18 June 2016:  Lonmay Church Strawberry Tea and official opening of new Church Hall, and dedication of memorial tree.

The day went very well is spite of the cool breeze, with plenty of indoor and covered accommodation for the teas and stalls.  The bouncy castle was very popular with the children and lots of prizes for all ages were provided by the raffle and other stalls.  The Very Reverend John P Chalmers formally opened the new church hall and planted the memorial tree to “BB Andy” Buchan.  A sample of the day’s activities can be seen below (click on any image to enlarge).

Strawberry Tea 2015:

A Strawberry Tea event was held at the church on Saturday 20th June 2015.  This has proved to be very popular in the past and was well attended in 2015. In spite of a showery start to the day as the marquees were being set up, the weather was dry and only a little breezy for the event. Plenty of sheltered accommodation was available for people to sit and enjoy their strawberry teas and to tour the stalls out of the breeze. The bouncy castle and Lucky Dip were very popular with the children and there was a cake stall, raffle stall and Tombola stall for the adults. The event raised £1041 for church funds. A flavour of the event is given in the following image:StrawberryTea3cropped_2015
