The 125th anniversary year of Fairlie Village Hall was launched in style with a special community event recently.
Present and former committee members, representatives of village groups and invited guests joined together to celebrate.
Proceedings kicked off with a bit of “community singing”, when the Semple Centre Singers led the assembled company in some Scottish favourites. Everyone then enjoyed some cheese and wine, and viewed the new boards which have been mounted in the foyer depicting the history of Fairlie and the Village Hall. 
All are welcome to drop in to the Village Hall when open to view the boards.
And as part of the celebrations, the Village Hall has been booked out on Friday 10 March, 11 and 12th to show the Calcutta Cup on a big projector screen, and has a drinks licence for the occasion, so that locals can get together and enjoy the Six Nations Rugby, while the Village Inn and Mudhook pub is closed.
The Village Hall showed live football matches during the 2008 World Cup, and members of the steering group to save the Village Inn pub are resurrecting this concept for the big rugby weekend.
