Just a quick word of thanks to those who supported Cumbernauld Old’s recent Plant Sale & Coffee Morning and our Quiz Night. The first event raised £85 for church funds and the quiz raised an amazing £487. Thanks once again!
There are couple of fundraising activities coming up over the summer and we thought we’d let you know what we have in the pipeline so you can put the dates in your diaries and also decide how you may be able to help.
Summer Garden Party on Saturday 9th July
A summer garden party is being held in the Manse grounds on Saturday 9th July from 11.00 am till 1.00 pm. We are currently looking for donations for the tea room, the summer picnic hamper, home baking stall and tombola and have put up a ‘wish list’ in both the Village Church and the hall at the Forge Centre, Balloch. So please add your name to that if you can help.
Also, if you are able to help on the day, even for an hour, please speak to Janice Smillie, Ivy Fletcher, Elizabeth Snedden, Mhairi Gilchrist, Anne Morrison or Caroline Edwardson.
Plant Sale and Coffee on Saturday 8th October
A plant cuttings and coffee event is planned for Saturday 8th October (a change from the previously-advertised date), so we’re making an early plea to all those gardeners out there to please bring along cuttings from your garden over the summer months for this event.
We’ll post further details about both events as their dates get closer, but wanted to let you know about them early in the hope we can enlist your help. Thanks in advance!
