West End Christmas Fortnight meeting

This afternoon, I had the pleasure of chairing the latest West End Christmas Fortnight committee meeting, which took place in Blackness Library. 

West End Christmas Fortnight 2014 is taking really good shape - and we discussed the detail of various events taking place during this year's fortnight - 22nd November to 6th December - and these include :

Saturday 22nd November :    Grand Christmas Fortnight Launch including Shoppers' Saturday, vintage car cavalcade, children's lantern making workshop and Dundee West Church Christmas Coffee Morning.

Wednesday 26th November :   The West End Christmas Lights Switch On at Seabraes, Christmas Concert at Dundee West Church, Fireworks Display, Christmas Carnival - a great night out for all the family!

Saturday 29th November :     Friends of Blackness Primary School Christmas Fayre.

Wednesday 3rd December :   West End Community Evening at The Vine.

Saturday 6th December :    P6 school five-a-side football competition featuring our local primary schools, "Walk in the Dark" children's event at the Botanic Garden and a Christmas Coffee Morning at Pennycook Court.

There will also be other children's activities at Blackness Library, a children's window spotting competition, a Best Dressed Shop Window competition and a play produced by the Time2Give Creative Writing Group.
