Find photos of Tune-a-Week on the TAWCA website. Amazing workshops, great music, plenty of tartan. Merrian Dennis has posted many photos of TAWCA and children’s activities on facebook via Camperdown Arts Access. Great work by Yonie Tiljak, Ian Currell, Sarah Pollard & Joanne – the kids loved it & the pavement was glorious, the face painting gorgeous. A banner was created with kids in the corner room assisted by Merrian Dennis, Anne Delwig and Kirsty Delwig. Lyn McLean and Berrice Joans supervised hopscotch and skipping games in front of the library. James Castle and Brendan supervised games in the Avenue. Ross McKilveen organised the kilter dash and kaber tossing in the Avenue. Story-telling by Pam Redgewell and Gail Watson was held in the library on Saturday morning. A highlight was a visit from Cobden Highland Dance Group. Chris Macguire organised the market with a focus on Scottish food – the highland beef pies were a hit! Clicker group snappers were at events with their cameras – getting a piece of the action!
