West End Christmas Fortnight 2014 - an update @WEndChristmas

Last Friday, I had the pleasure of chairing the second West End Christmas Fortnight 2014 meeting of the year at Blackness Library.

This year's Christmas Fortnight will run from Saturday 22nd November to Saturday 6th December and there's a number of new initiatives that will be taking place this year, including "Shoppers' Saturday" on launch day, 22nd November, which will also feature a number of other launch events, including children's activities.    The Dundee West Church Guild Christmas Fayre will also take place on launch Saturday.

The West End Christmas Concert, lights switch on and fireworks display will take place on the evening of Wednesday 26th November and Blackness Primary School's Christmas Fair will be on Saturday 29th November.

There will be a number of other activities - one being a new initiative - a social evening for West End friends', community and residents' groups - and some for local children including a P6 Football Competition on the closing Saturday, 6th December.    Also on the closing Saturday, the Pennycook and Sindersins Courts' Christmas Coffee Morning will take place.

We'd greatly welcome the participation of new people - local residents and local businesses - in the committee that helps plan the Christmas Fortnight so either call me on 459378 or e-mail christmas2014@frasermacpherson.org.uk if you wish to participate - many thanks!
