THE Ardrossan Winton Rovers summer fete is taking place this month - for the first time since 2019.

Organisers confirmed that the popular event would be making its triumphant return back in March.

Now delighted Winton Rovers chairman Pat Breen has told the Herald exactly what people can expect if they pop along to Winton Park on Saturday, May 27.

He said: "It’s a big event for the community and it’s a big event for the club. It's what the club puts back into the community."

The event begins at 12pm, and is to be opening by the Reverend Jim Smith and the Largs Boys Brigade Pipe Band.

Across the park there will also be a number of bric-a-brac stalls for those in attendance to mull around and fun fair rides for kids to enjoy.

There will also be a football tournament taking place throughout the day, with youngsters competing for the Derek Cherry Memorial Trophy.

More local youngsters will also be in attendance to show off their talents, with Dance Mafia due to perform at the fete.

The dog show will also be taking place this year.

There will also be a new aspect to the fete in 2023, thanks to the Ardrossan Community Sports Hub. It will be holding a fitness challenge, family fun run, a kids race and an adult race in the area surrounding Winton Park - specifically the Cannon Hill and Ardrossan Castle.

Keeping the crowds entertained and fuelled up throughout the event there will be a DJ playing, snacks on offer and the bar will be open.

The fete will then close at around 4pm after a day filled with fun for all.
