In the middle Saturday of West End Christmas Fortnight, it was great to see lots of activities across the West End, including:
* The West End Christmas Fortnight Primary 5's football competition. It was a great event with 5 teams participating from three of our local primary schools - Ancrum Road, Blackness and St Joseph's. Here's some photographs and a video from the tournament that was kindly sponsored by Good Health and Fitness and run by Riverside Community Sports Club:
And the winners are St Joseph's Primary School who won the final against Blackness Primary School. Here's the winning team, having received the cup from Murray McDowell of Good Health and Fitness:
Best goal scorer was Ben Garrick - Ben received a gold football boot award from Murray:
* Christmas Fayres. In addition to the Harris Academy Parent Teacher and Pupils Association (PTPA) Christmas Fayre that I also had the pleasure of attending (see right), it was also great to see other fayres taking place in the West End this morning.
Firstly - see below - the Pennycook and Sinderins Courts Sheltered Housing had a very well-attended Christmas coffee morning at Pennycook Court. It was a thoroughly enjoyable event and good to see so many local residents supporting this.
Secondly - again see below - the Magdalen Artists have their Christmas Exhibition of Art and Craft taking place at the Vine in Magdalen Yard Road. This is open again tomorrow from 10.30am to 4pm.
