A huge THANK-YOU to everyone who helped make last Saturday’s Christmas Fair at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church such a success. It’s impossible to name everyone, but the list includes those who came along to the Village Hall on Friday night to help get things set up, everyone who donated items for the stalls, tearoom, prizes, etc., all those who staffed the stalls on the day and those helped clear up afterwards, those who made and served the teas, Santa Claus (of course!) who gave up some time from his busy schedule to pay them a visit, the people who did all the planning, phoning and cajoling behind the scenes and, finally, everyone who came along and supported the event with their time and their money.
It was a real team effort by so many people. The people at Cumbernauld Old are delighted to say that around £2012 was raised for Church funds and they extend their thanks to everyone who contributed in whatever way.
Next Saturday, 30th November, it’s the turn of Condorrat Parish Church, whose annual Christmas Fayre will be held in the Church halls starting at 12 noon and which will be opened by Jamie Hepburn, MSP. Full details in an earlier post.
The next major fund-raising event at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is the Christmas Fair, which takes place in the Village Hall in The Wynd, Cumbernauld Village on Saturday 23rd November starting at 10am. As well as most of the familiar stalls they plan to have a ‘market area’ with a variety of items suitable for Christmas presents.
The organisers are currently looking for donations for the Christmas Hamper, raffle and tombola prizes, baking, soft goods and good quality (complete) children’s toys and games. Due to storage restrictions there won’t be a bookstall or bric-a-brac stall this year. Donations can be handed in at at the Village Hall on Friday 22nd from 7pm – 9pm.
