PUPILS at Ross-shire's largest secondary school are setting the scene for a massive free festive fair next week.

The Dingwall Academy Christmas Fair next Friday promises to be a cracker with no fewer than 134 stalls, spectacular raffle prizes and, for younger folk, an opportunity to meet Santa.

The fair on Friday, December 1 runs from 6-9pm and will include free music and entertainment from pupils.

Senior pupils helping to organise it said: "We would really like to encourage people to buy their Christmas presents from our stall holders. They are all local small businesses, charities and community groups."

The funds from the fair will be spent expanding employability activities. The school is currently working with Mears to provide a workshop space for STEM activities and vocational training.

There’ll be a Santa’s Grotto, refreshment area, raffle, bottle stall, free activities for pre-school children and lots of shopping opportunities.

The fair is being organised by the Parent Council and the pupils.

Raffle prizes include Belladrum weekend tickets for two adults, a Ross County family ticket and tickets for Highland Wildlife Park.
