Mary Bates writes ‘Loch Lomond and Trossachs 2020 Calendar is now available, featuring for the first time, St Mary’s in the December picture. A kitchen calendar with a tear-off postcard plus a recipe for each month, it is great value for money at £3.50 each – or £3 each if you buy 2 or more. Available at St Mary’s (supplies are in my car boot!) or contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can arrange delivery – within reason. A donation for each calendar sold through the church will be made to the Linkage’.
St Andrews Christmas Fair (see below)
There are now boxes at the back of church to receive items for the raffle and tombola. Many thanks to all who have generously donated items so far.
This will be held at St Mary’s on Sunday 17th November (see above). After the service, there will be a congregational lunch in the Faerie Tree. The order form for lunch appears at the end of the bulletin. Please complete and return this to Richard by Sunday 10th November.
