Fiona told the Advertiser: "Once again I’ve been so grateful for the support this wee gallery at my home has had.

"I’ve brought together almost 30 artists and makers from the local area and across Scotland, and there has been such a great response from visitors.

“I’ve introduced some newcomers this time and brought back many old favourites for the fourth Christmas show, Winter Wonders - and everyone has been hugely supportive.

“It all started in November 2020 at the height of Covid as a one-off idea in my porch - hence the name.

"I’m actually really humbled that it received so much support and love that it has come back year after year since, bringing with it people who have visited every single show and those who are still discovering it for the first time. 

"I need to thank them all hugely for making it all work.

“I’m also absolutely passionate about the work of the amazing RNLI and continue to support these lifesavers with cards sales and would encourage anyone coming along to consider taking some home with them; every single penny counts.

“I apologise for the unforeseen change in opening hours on Friday and hope that everyone will understand and still be able to find time to visit in these last few days.”
