RAIN couldn’t dampen the spirits of the recent Old Kilpatrick Bowling Church Fete.

The June 3 event kicked off with a parade through the village leaving from Erskine Ferry Road before filling the church grounds with activities for everyone.

Entertainers, dancers, bouncy castles, books, DVDs and CDs stall, tombola, plant stall, crafts, face painting, willow weaving, wood craft, tuck shop, storytelling corner – the day had it all.

Among the groups attending to show off their skills and community spirit were Napier Toddlers and Playgroup, Action Old Kilpatrick, Laura Gray School of Dance and many others.

And of course there was the food – from tea to a barbecue – and raffle prizes.
