Items for auction of Gifts and Promises

Hello.

Please find attached  details of the CR  C of E Primary School Exhibition to help to mark their 50th Anniversary in church November 16/17

I am sure Jill would appreciate it if you could advertise it far and wide.

It seems too good an opportunity to miss to thank you all for supporting our great auction of Gifts and Promises last Friday Oct 25th.

We received messages of good wishes from those outwith the parish who couldn’t come and then about 55 folk turned out to help us raise a staggering £2,000. It was a really good, convivial evening too thanks to hard work from Ruth Tuer on the Bar, Jill and Karen Winder on the door, Kath Hamilton and Jean Bailey in the kitchen, Derek Raine acting as a very effective Auctioneer aided by Treasurer David Graham, Sass Robertson and Alex Barbour showing the lots plus many others who had helped beforehand.

So after this summer of scaffold and top class craftsmen’s work, we are happy to be able to worship in, and use, a dry St Lawrence; we are beginning to regroup and get ready to move on into the next year when we tackle some form of effective, and not astronomically expensive heating, approval from the Diocese not withstanding.

Hope to see you over Nov 16/17 weekend.
