Yes, we really do need to keep at the fundraising. We have several projects to take forward – and support for all our fundraising events is a great way for members of our congregation (and others….friends, neighbours, relations and colleagues) to engage in something specific and targeted to both our immediate and long-term needs. Please let the Churchwardens or Vicar know if you have any bright ideas for possible fundraising events…..especially if you would like to mastermind the running of one. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org

Burns Night Supper
A great night out was had by all at the Burn’s Night Supper on Friday, January 24th . The Haggis was piped in with due ceremony and addressed appropriately before being consumed accompanied by bashed neeps and tatties. Whisky was drunk, poems recited, songs sung, including Auld Lang Syne! The event raised £670
Choir robes: the choir needs some new robes. One proposal is that these could be funded by ‘crowd funding’ (past successes for this were new hymnbooks and re-covering the chairs) where individuals sponsor one specific item (or proportion thereof!)
