Fun-filled Christmas fete to raise cash for residents at Bield

A retirement housing development in East Dunbartonshire is opening its doors to the local community for a fun-filled Christmas fete.

Bield’s Whitehill Court site in Kirkintilloch will be hosting the annual event on Saturday, December 5 from 11am-3pm. All the proceeds will be used to enhance and enrich the lives of tenants.

There will be a range of stalls, including jewellery, clothing and novelty goods hand-made by tenants and their friends and family. Tea and coffee will also be served. Margaret McEwan, Development Manager, said: “While our Christmas fete is a fundraiser, it’s also about sharing some festive fun with the local community.

“We want to give everyone the chance to come along and have the opportunity to shop for special presents in a relaxing atmosphere without the stress of attending the bigger shops.

“It’s always a great day. There will also be fun-filled activities for children including face painting and a chance to meet Santa Claus.”
