One condition of the funding we received from the Heritage Lottery Fund for Project ROCK is that we must open the Church to the public (apart from our worship services). We hope to do this by opening our doors on Sunday afternoons in July, August and September from 2pm to 5pm and longer on the Doors Open Days weekend (12/13 September).
We therefore need a number of willing volunteers to show visitors around the Church – the more the better – so if you can spare one or more afternoons in an excellent cause, please speak to Iain Ogilvie or any office bearer over the next week or two. We will provide enough information to be getting in with and you will not be expected to know the full history of the Church – just be a friendly face!
This year’s annual Summer Fete will be held on Saturday 30th May from 1.30pm – 4.00pm in the Manse grounds and we are looking for a turn-out to match last year’s wonderful attendance. Entry will be £1 per adult, with free entry for accompanied children. There will be an additional charge for the tea-room.
We hope to have all the usual stalls and plenty of activities for the children – at the moment we are looking for donations for raffle prizes and the tombola and soft goods (e.g. knitting, etc.) stalls. But most of all we’d like to ask you to put the date in your diary and make a note to come along.
We would also like help during the preceding week to help us get ready – if you can volunteer to help us clean / wipe down tables and chairs on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th from 6.30pm, and with erecting some stalls and gazebos on Friday 29th, that help would be greatly appreciated. Just turn up at the Manse and join in the fun!
With your help this year’s Summer Fete could be the best yet. Don’t miss it!
