Organisers of Stathern Festival are stepping down from the role in the hope that volunteers will do something different in the future.

This year marked the 10th anniversary of the festival which featured an impressive 20 events in total.

Some of the attractions included the inaugural Party in the Park, Summer Ball, Caribbean Carnival, 10-hour Danceathon and an anniversary exhibition.

Sally Fagan said: “We wanted to go out with a bang rather than a fizzle.

“This year we’ve raised around £10,500 for local good causes despite the dreadful weather. When the festival started we took £5K in our first year and have raised in excess of £110K in total over the ten years.

“It is likely that some of the larger festival attractions will continue but for now fresh ideas are needed.”
