Entries can be left in the box at the front door of 3 Tyninghame Mains. Remember to put your name on the back of your entry. Children can also add their age.

There will be prizes and everyone can vote for their favourites.

Easter in Tyninghame 2-4 April 2021

At Easter the bus Shelter was brightly decorated by a group of grown up Easter bunnies, featuring hanging eggs, paper flowers, birds and art from many budding artists! The red Phone Box had a beautiful woodland display which the children loved especially all the ‘bunnies’ in there.

A nature trail  and a few other activities including an Easter quiz, word search and bird identification sheet were put in the Shelter. There was a wee basket for each of the children to collect their finds. Some of the activities to do were hop like a rabbit, spot the silver trees, name some birds on the feeders, collect a feather, spot the ‘animals’ in Frog Lane and paint a picture. A small reward was left for each child in a lidded box much to the delight of each and every one of them!

Alastair and Liz Stobbart kindly donated some carefully packed Hot Cross Buns which were a welcome treat for all and a basket of ‘hidden’ mini eggs for grandparents on the trail. 

It was a real a joy to hear excited children’s voices around the village on such a beautiful sunny weekend.

“Great fun! She enjoyed the hot cross bun thank you Liz and we’ll be painting eggs tomorrow so will place them in the bus shelter”

“So brilliant in fact the boys are desperate (& about to) embark on it for a second time – so many thanks! “

A sweet thank you note

 

 

12 Days of Christmas

To celebrate the festive season in 2020, the Tyninghame community displayed the Twelve Days of Christmas in windows throughout the village. In addition the bus shelter was given a festive overhaul and there was an opportunity to leave good wishes for fellow villagers or even messages for Father Christmas himself.

On Christmas Eve the villagers were treated to some lovely Christmas music played by Elinor Evans on the clarsach. We gathered at social distances on Main Street with our candle lamps while the sun set spectacularly.

Christmas Wreath-Making Workshop – 6th December

Many thanks to those who took part in the Christmas wreath-making workshops in December, both in the Hall and at home. There were some very beautiful wreaths adorning the doors of Tyninghame village (and beyond!). The winner of the wreath-making workshop was Sabina Struthers and her wreath can be seen in the bottom left of the collage.

We are very grateful to all the organisers for their time and effort.
