Linkage Bulletin for week commencing 21st August 2017



Harvest Supper


We are planning to hold a Harvest Supper and Quiz for both parishes  at St Andrews on Friday 29th September.


Could you please let Fiona Gibson( or 01877 331926) as soon as possible whether you are likely to attend and what you might be able to bring. It is suggested that each person brings one item serving six people. This is quiche, cold meat,  a salad, a pudding, wine or a soft drink. Paper copies of this notice can be found in both churches should you prefer.
