Busy Weekend for BOOKMARK

8th Sep 2013

Friday, Saturday and Sunday saw BOOKMARK volunteers in the Jampionship tent at the Dundee Flower and Food Festival. Here, amid wonderful images of berry picking and jam making in the Blairgowrie area, volunteers chatted to visitors about the book festival and handed out  dozens of programmes. The response was so positive that, despite long hours of standing, we returned feeling it had been very worthwhile.

Sunday dawned and it was up early and off to Blairgowrie Highland Games with more volunteers to man the gates. BOOKMARK collaborated with the Games committee in providing manpower in exchange for a bit of publicity for the book festival. The sun shone, the crowds came out and more festival programmes went home to be digested before tickets are bought.

That was the weekend that was! 


It‘s fantastic and its so nice that its so busy and in our local area.  It has huge crowds for such a small place as Blair and it is so community driven which is lovely.
