The SVP Christmas Party -Postponed

Apologies for this, but with severe weather forecast again, we think it is the wisest thing to do! Cancelling the Party cannot be left until the last minute, as guests have to be notified and food would have been bought in. A revised date has not yet been fixed – but we’ll keep you informed.

A Happy and Holy Christmas from the S.V.P.

In your charity, please remember; Bridie Allan, Isabel Boardman, David Clelland, Gladys Docherty, James Docherty, Annette Dunn, Thomas Gourley, George McCallum and all the sick and housebound.

John McGarry, Rosina Roy, Margaret Thomson and Jimmy White, whose anniversaries occur about this time.

Help for the elderly We have received a letter from Lilias Snedden, a Youth Worker from St Andrew’s Church. She has organised young people in her Group to help elderly / infirm members of the community, by shopping, clearing paths etc. If you know of anyone who is struggling or in need of essential shopping, please contact Maria Ford(01506 510 629), who will pass on the information to Lilias.

Children’s Liturgy Helpers are still urgently needed, if this very popular and worthy service is to continue. If you can help, please contact Maria Ford for full details. Training will be provided.

          A Happy and Holy Christmas to Everyone !
