Mainly Music Inverurie celebrated their recent10-year anniversary with a special party and cake.

The group was originally formed as a way to bring parents and carers together while giving children an entertaining evening of music and stories.

Founder Jane Fraser was encouraged to set up the group after she saw a gap in local social events and has been impressed by how well the group has lasted.

Throughout the group's lifespan, the routine has stayed a hit.

Ms Fraser said: " We start with a session of toys and books read to the youngsters by their carers.

"We follow up with action songs."

The group, which meets at West Church on West High Street, Inverurie has amassed a loyal following among a generation of carers and kids in the area.

Spokesperson Griselda McGregor said: "One visitor today actually brought along an empty tin can to show she remembered what 10th anniversary meant!

"And a beautiful cake was supplied by Inverurie's Fly Cup bakers."

Tuesday's well-attended meeting was enjoyed by kids range from 7 year-old Paloma to a four year old.

Jane said she was happy that the group enjoyed a visit from the chairperson of International Mainly Music, Jo Hood from New Zealand, which has been established for over 25 years.

The next meeting before summer break is a Forest Mainly Music at Keithhall, where they will also be on the look-out for wild life residents.
