Knitting for Remembrance

180408_010 Poppy samplers at COPCCumbernauld Old Parish Church and Cumbernauld Village Community Council are looking for ways to commemorate the centenary of the ending of the First World War later this year.

One of the suggestions is to create a memorial display of knitted poppies. They have put together a sample of the kinds of poppies that can be hand-knitted (pictured) and produced knitting patterns for each design.

Obviously, the more poppies that can be knitted, the larger the final display that will be produced. So please pick up a pattern leaflet from the church or from the Community Council and make your own little contribution to the display. Thanks for your help!

Sunday 4th March

Good morning everyone!
Just in case you missed the flurry (❄sorry!) of activity on our Facebook page and Twitter feed yesterday evening, we can advise that the worship services at Abronhill, Condorrat, Kildrum and St Mungo’s Parish Churches tomorrow have been cancelled due to the outdoor conditions and continuing severe weather alerts.
As it stands, the Communion service at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church at 11am in the Village is still on. We’ll let you know on Facebook and Twitter should there be a change.

Please take care and do not travel if it seems unsafe to do so.
