Ardnamurchan High School Christmas Fayre was held in Strontian on Saturday at the Sunart Centre.
The fayre, which had stalls from around 20 local artists, crafters and makers along with festive food and drink was a huge success, raising more than £1,600 for the High School and offering the local community and visitors to get a head start on Christmas shopping.
There was a huge array of locally-made cards, decorations, preserves, toys and gifts, with a heavy emphasis on recycled and upcycled materials being used, including beachcombed treasures, seaglass and plastic-free alternative gift ideas.
Refreshments, including hot turkey rolls, soup and a huge selection of homebaked cakes were on offer and the table displaying the raffle prizes donated from local businesses and residents was groaning with amazing offerings including hampers.
Chairwoman of the Ardnamurchan High School parent council, Hollie Taylor, said: ‘There was a lovely atmosphere at this year’s Christmas Fayre.’
Ms Taylor, who played a key role in organising the event added: ‘I’d like to thank all the parents, staff, pupils and stall holders who helped to make
this annual fundraiser and community event.’
