The fund-raising group at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church would like to thank everyone who braved the downpour on Saturday 16th June and came along to make our annual Summer Fair such a success. Despite the dreadful weather, we are delighted to advise that £1015.68 was raised for church funds on the day.
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is holding a Garden Party in the Manse grounds on Saturday 3rd June, starting at 11am and finishing at 1pm.
There will be a number of stalls, including raffle, tombola and home baking.
Entry is £4.00 per person, and that includes a serving of scones, jam and clotted cream, with tea or coffee.
What can we say? The weather was glorious, the turnout excellent and the sum raised for church funds on Saturday afternoon was an astonishing £2159 (with possibly more to come in). An enormous THANK-YOU to everyone who came along during the previous week to set-up gazebos, hang the bunting, prepare the Manse garden, dust down tables and chairs and generally made sure that everything went like clockwork on the day.
Thank-you, too, to the bakers and knitters and musicians and all who provided donations for our many stalls. Thanks are due also to everyone who came along on the day, brought along family and friends, spent their money and provided what was a marvellous atmosphere. And, finally, all who worked to wash-up, clear up and dismantle everything once the crowds had gone. A real team effort and much appreciated.
HUGE THANK-YOUs to everyone who helped to make our Summer Fete a great success on a beautiful, sunny day. Thank you to everyone who put up and dismantled stalls and gazebos; to bakers and tearoom ladies; to people who donated goods, staffed the stalls and ran the games; to those who came along, bought so much of what was on offer and added to the occasion; to the totter-uppers and tidy-uppers. Finally, thanks to Duncan and Irene Whyte and all their helpers from the Men’s and Ladies groups and beyond. The day was a huge success and raised a wonderful £2658.57 (to be confirmed). Very well done, and thank you, everybody!
