Cumbernauld Old Parish Church would like to express once again our thanks to everyone who knitted and crocheted poppies over the past weeks and months. Every one was beautiful and a real work of art.
Thanks also to all the ladies who came along to sew them onto the panels of netting. Each session was full of chat and laughter, not to mention tea and biscuits. It was a real opportunity to get to know others and we even had volunteers from other churches in the town and several village residents.
Our work is now done and everything is ready to hand over to Anne Louise and Julian for the final installation. This will be carried out over the next few days in time for Remembrance Sunday.
Lots of people have said that they would like to see the finished work but for some reason won’t be able to come on the 11th November, therefore we have decided to open the church on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th from 7.00pm to 9.00pm both evenings to allow visitors to see the result of all our hard hard work.
Thanks also to the congregation for the interest you have shown in the project and the support that you have given us over the last few months.
