Christmas Arts and Crafts Fair
We are hosting a Christmas Arts and Crafts Fair downstairs in Lockerbie Town Hall on Saturday the 4th of November from 10.30am to 12.30pm. It will be more than twice the size of our earlier Easter Craft Fair this year which raised in the region of £340 for Church funds. Around twenty businesses will be attending including Natural Little Bee, who make natural skincare products from local beeswax and honey; Pinecone Pottery; Carol Ruddock
Jewellery; Scaur Glen Soap and KGR Glass Design plus many more. The church will also have a number of stalls including wooden Christmas decorations, a cake stall and a raffle containing donations of work from all the stall holders. Maryna, our organist, will also be
making traditional Ukrainian gingerbread biscuits and you will be able to pick up a recipe sheet and buy some of her tasty treats. Refreshments will be on sale with plenty of tables for you to sit at, take in the atmosphere, and have a chat before the raffle is drawn. If you can help out on the day or can make something for the cake stall please let me know as soon as possible. So come along, enjoy a cuppa and a slice of Abida’s cake, and do some Christmas shopping. Please spread the word about the Event as far and wide as possible to ensure a good turn out which would enable us to do the same again next year.
The Spring Coffee Morning
The Spring Coffee Morning will be held on Saturday the 13th of May from 10.30 to 12 noon in the church. We will be serving teas and coffees as well raising money through our popular raffle, cake stall, craft stall with plants and flowers, tombola and guess the bunnies birthday. Donations for the raffle will be gratefully received, ideally by Sunday the 7th of May, with items for the cake stall and plants on the morning of the sale. Anyone who can’t make it along on the day is welcome to guess the bunnies birthday beforehand at £1 a go. Please add your name to the date you select in the diary and leave your money in the dish beside it. Entrance is free and everyone will be most welcome so please spread the word and invite your friends and family to help make the morning a success.
