Stonehaven baby Fair takes place on Sunday May 29 from 10am-2pm in Stonehaven Town Hall and attracts over 25 exhibitors with a fantastic raffle in aid of local organisation Homestart.

Last year’s winner was little Matthew Anderson (pictured).

A raffle will be held at the Stonehaven Baby Fair, with proceeds going to Friends of the Special Nursery - Aberdeen Neo-natal Unit, so make sure you buy raffle tickets and give a donation for the goody bag which each visitor will receive.

The Hall will be packed with stalls with everything you need for you and your baby.
