West End at the Westerwood

Cumbernauld Musical Theatre Society has kindly volunteered to provide an evening of entertainment as a fundraiser event for Cumbernauld Old Parish Church. We hope this will take place in early November – more details to follow.

In the meantime, in the interest of fostering positive local relationships, the Church Fundraising Group is keen to support this fantastic local theatre group. The Cumbernauld Musical Theatre Society will be performing a range of songs at their show ‘West End at the Westerwood‘ on Saturday 13th (already sold out) and Sunday 14th October at the Westerwood Hotel, Cumbernauld. We have been offered the opportunity of a block booking for the 2.30pm matinee performance on Sunday 14th October at a reduced price of £10 per person.

This will give you a chance to see and hear the Society in action before they come to perform at our fundraiser, when the programme of songs will be different. If you wish to book a place for the Westerwood show on 14th October, please get in touch and we’ll pass on your details to our fundraising team.

Lest We Forget – Exciting News

180826_015 Poppy Collection at Cumbernauld OldThank you so much to everyone who has handed in knitted poppies so far for the Remembrance Day 100th Anniversary display in Cumbernauld Village. Each one has been done with such love, care and attention – they are all just beautiful.

There’s still time to hand in more, so keep them coming! We have wool available at the Parish Church in the Village and at the Forge Centre in Balloch for those who need some.

Now for some great news: Some time ago we submitted an application to the National Lottery for funding to take the project one step further and create a permanent feature to enhance the area around the war memorial in the Baronhill. We have just received news that our application has been successful. We’ll let you know more of our plans soon, so watch this space!
