SLIDESHOW: The last Langfaulds Fun Day?

Organisers have hailed this year’s Langfaulds Field Community Fun Day as the ‘most successful yet’, with over 1,500 people going along.

Rev Alan Wells, one of the day’s organisers from Castlehill Baptist Church, Bearsden, said: “Five years ago as a Christian community we asked what could we do to make the community we live in more of a real community.

“We came up with the fun day idea. And as everyone sees, a community coming together is a beautiful and powerful thing.

“It was a brilliant day out for everyone. Old friends reacquainted. New friends made.

“It has been a real privilege to be involved in this, to see what can be achieved with a bit of effort and some good ideas.”

When asked about the rumour that this was to be the last fun day, Rev Wells said: “We said we would do five. We’ve done five.

“We now need to sit down with this incredibly supportive community and see where we take this revived community spirit. We’re looking forward to great ideas and conversations over the next few months.”

The Fair Trade stall sold £193.30 worth of chocolate and other goodies on the day.

In the arena, dozens of dogs were proudly shown off by their owners in the Glenbrae Vets dog show.

Another set of dogs from the Kirkintilloch Dog Display Team Dog put on a spectacular show of jumping and control, while the NK Scottish Country Dance Team showed what good country dancing looks like with their display.

And the Allander Jazz band played their unique brand of light and very enjoyable jazz throughout the afternoon.

The rich musical touch was completed by the samba band from Bearsden Academy.
