BOOKMARK takes part in Picnic in the Park

12th Aug 2013

BOOKMARK had a vibrant presence at the weekend's Loon Braes Partnership 'Picnic in the Park'. 

This took place on Saturday 10th August at Davie Park in Rattray and was organised by the Partnership in cooperation with the Strathmore Centre for Youth Development (SYCD) and Project Scotland volunteers. "The idea was to put on a small scale community event which had something for everyone and that the whole community could come down and enjoy."

The picnic saw entertainment throughout the afternoon from local groups such as the Gayle Duncan School of Dance and the Blairgowrie and Rattray Marching Band. There was also live music, a bouncy castle, paintballing, a car boot sale and birds of prey and it was an entertaining and fun-filled afternoon. The BOOKMARK stall promoted the MINI BOOKMARK Festival which is on 19th October and encouraged youngsters (and their parents) to sit on the Tell-A-Story blanket or sit and write a story opener from prompt cards.

The next BOOKMARK stall will be set up at the Wellmeadow Community Market on Saturday 24th August. Programmes and tickets will be available on the day as well as a great selection of secondhand books for children and adults. 


A great time was had by all. We also enjoyed The Blairgowrie Players’ version of Whisky Galore at the Town Hall yesterday. Well done to all and the afternoon tea was delicious.
