"There was a large and excellent array of artistic and useful articles, which met a ready sale. A marquee was erected in the playground, in which refreshments were served......Colonel Sprot, in a brief speech, said he had a good record for opening bazaars. In the old city of St Andrews he had opened a bazaar which was an annual one, and resulted in the largest amount that had ever been drawn. He hoped those present would help to keep up his good reputation, and by way of good example he would make a purchase at every stall. (Laughter and applause.)"
Anyway, his reputation for bringing good fortune to bazaars held true, as the Evening Telegraph of 28 July reported that the event had raised around £300 (a huge sum for 1908). The newspaper also noted that there were plans to sell left over articles at a supplementary sale in August.
"Lundin Links "boolers" are well advanced with their competitions for the various trophies, which are hurrying on, as the green is generally overtaxed during July and August by the visitors."
The visitors were a welcome arrival though and they would do their bit to organise events and raise money for local causes.
