The Friends of Crarae Annual Carol Concert was held on the 15th December 2016 in the Visitor Centre.
The Dalriada Singers entertained a packed house with Carols, Choral music and Festive readings, poems and an ingenious Jingle Bells piano duet (one keyboard!).
The hot mince-pies and mulled fruit punch were a welcome relief from the blustery evening. In all the takings were in the region of £390 so thank you to everyone who attended, took part and gave of their precious time to make this event such a success.
The Friends of Crarae Committee met at the Crarae Garden Visitor Center for the AGM on the 22nd July. A few Friends had an interesting 'wander' around the garden beforehand. The team were joined by local 'Friends' and a glass of bubbles and a bowl of fabulous summer fruits were enjoyed by all present. Thanks to the Committee and the Friends who attended the meeting for their valuable ideas and contributions to the meeting.
