Stranraer Oyster Festival

We are devastated to say that the weather has beaten us and we have to cancel our Big Christmas Bash on the Castle Square today.

Unfortunately due to good old Scottish weather we have decided not to go ahead for health and safety reasons. We are sorry to those that had planned to come along today.

This means we will also be postponing the raffle draw, so those of you that have not yet bought tickets have some time.

Not all is lost though - we do plan to go ahead next week and will keep you posted so keep your eyes peeled 🤗 This is when we will announce the winner of our hamper so we can make sure it is with the lucky person in time for Christmas.

Please can everyone get sharing this post.

Stay safe and warm today folks ☃️
