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

 

 

Tyninghame Photographic Competition-deadline 31 August 2021

Calling all amateur photographers, weekend snappers, iphone clickers and young camera buffs to enter your favourite photos of Tyninghame and the surrounding area to our inaugural photography competition. 

We are ideally looking for photos taken during the past year within the Tyninghame/Whitekirk area which show off the wonderful area where we live, work and play. The photographs submitted will form the basis of a local exhibition with 12 selected images to be made into a 2022 calendar which will be sold in aid of the Village Hall Refurbishment Fund.

Images can be in landscape or portrait format, full colour or black and white. There will be various categories but here are a few suggestions:-

The Village of Tyninghame 

Along the River Tyne

At or From the Beach 

Wildlife 

People and pets

If taking images on a mobile device, please ensure you have selected “full resolution” in your settings so that the image has the highest number of pixels!

Selected photographs will be displayed in the village hall in Sept/Oct 2021 and the deadline for submission will be 31 August 2021. If Covid restrictions are back in force the exhibition will be displayed online.

Details of how to enter will be posted in the next months in the bus shelter and here on the Tyninghame Village Hall website.

 

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.
