Bring & Buy Sale

Abronhill Church will be holding a Bring & Buy sale in the Church Hall on Saturday 28 October 2017 at 12 noon. Donations can be made between now and 27 October. Donations should be in a new or nearly new condition. Unfortunately no Bric-a-brac or second hand furniture can be accepted. Electrical goods must be new and in their packaging and will be purchased at the buyer’s responsibility. Items will be priced per table at £1, £2, £3, etc. so there will be no confusion about priced goods. Any goods not sold will be donated to a local charity shop unless stated otherwise and goods for return can be picked up by 3pm on the day. The tea room will also be open during the sale with tea/coffee/biscuits & perhaps cake available. If any other information is required or if you wish to help, please contact Margaret Naismith on 01236 720164.
