Lochyside Community Group combined afternoon tea in Caol Community Centre recently with a mini football tournament for youngsters at the adjoining MUGA pitch with everyone having a great time.

This was the latest venture from the recently set up group which took the form of a ‘meet the neighbours’ tea to encourage everyone in the community to come together and get to know each other, with outdoor fun for the children.

The event was well supported with a good turnout on the Sunday afternoon, chatting and enjoying the buffet, while young footballers ran about in the sunshine, where everyone was a winner and received a medal for their efforts.
