And here’s a clarifying note Roisin left on the SCFP Spouse Association’s Facebook Group:
There has been some confusion regarding the posters that have been seen around town (not made by our band).
To clarify, our Pipes and Drums Band will be hosting the “Kid Zone” which will be from 8:30am – 4:30pm at Broadmoor Lake. During the DAY the event is 100% FREE FAMILY FUN. This will have Traditional Highland Games available for kids to try, face painting (by donation), Princess visits and Bouncy Castles.

It is being held outside at Broadmoor lake in a big tent 6pm-11pm. All profit from the evening event will be going towards our band, so get your tickets to show your support!
