Tartan not just for Tartan Week

HOSPITALFIELD’S Tartan Supper, which had to be rescheduled after a date clash with the Arbroath appearance of one of the UK’s leading sopranos, Lesley Garrett, is now accepting bookings for Friday, May 18.

A special menu by chef Rod Linton will bring together the best of Angus ingredients in the finest of Angus settings – Hospitalfield House. Gourmet taster dishes comprise spring onion and leek terrine with roasted ham and mustard dressing; Scottish smoked salmon with spiced aubergine; pheasant dumpling wrapped in bacon with parsnip puree and red wine sauce; and Scottish ginger cake with vanilla tea ice cream

Enhancing the ambience will be traditional Scottish folk duo, Dennis Arnot and Nick Hunter. Tickets cost £35 per person including two complimentary glasses of wine. Booking is essential via friends@hospitalfield.org.uk or 07825 872370.

Hospitalfield Trust vice-chair Carol Pope stated: “We were sorry to have to cancel the previous date but are delighted to be able to offer friends, fans and followers a new opportunity to enjoy the Tartan Supper in this unique venue.”

Missing barber shop

THERE was some confusion last week regarding the opening of a new barber shop in Arbroath.

The article neglected to mention that Winston’s Barbers is now open for business at 10 Keptie Street.

CHAS fund-raiser

TWO FRIENDS are organising a fund-raiser in aid of the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland (CHAS).

Dawn Murray and Tracy Shepherd will hold a craft fayre with a wide variety of different stalls from local shops and crafts people at the Meadowbank, between 12 noon and 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 12.

Then, at night, there will be a fancy dress disco where the theme will be cartoon characters or film heroes. Entry to the craft fayre is by a donation at the door but the disco is £5 a ticket which will also include a small buffet and DJ. All money raised is going to CHAS which has two hospices, Rachel House and Robyn House, which provide services to families with children with life limiting conditions. Dawn works in the Angus Council access office and Tracy is a stay at home mum and a volunteer with the local Cancer Research charity shop in Arbroath.
