The Christmas Fayre will bring a warm glow for the community and lots of smiling faces in anticipation of the festive season. We hope that Santa and his Elves may be able to visit, there will be a grotto ready for him just in case so children (and adults) will be able to tell Santa what they’d like for Christmas.

Come along and join in the festivities and at 3.30pm approx. special guest Stevie McCrorie will entertain the crowds in the Cochrane Hall with a few songs including his brand new single My Heart Never Lies, which will be released this Friday. Then at 4pm Stevie will ‘flick the switch’ of the Christmas lights on the tree in the park adjacent to the hall.

Stevie has announced that his brand new single, ‘My Heart Never Lies’ will be released on Friday 13th November.

Alva Academy Dancers will perform and Alva Primary School Carol Singers will also enchant the crowds with several songs during the Christmas Fayre and there will be face painting, refreshments and tombola.
