VISIT TO CAMERON HOUSE The Guild is planning a visit to Cameron House in the first week of July. The theme of the programme will be VE Day. The Guild would welcome anyone who has memories of that day (first-hand or inherited) which they are willing to share with the residents to join them for the visit. Any memorabilia which anyone could bring along or loan would also be greatly appreciated. Please sign the sheet at the back of the Church, or speak to Janet Winchester.

EVENING SERVICE The evening service tonight will be at the usual time of 6.30pm but will be in the Church.

STRAWBERRY FAYRE As you know, we plan to hold a “Strawberry Fayre” next Saturday 6th June from 2-4pm in the Church hall and grounds. As well as providing teas with home bakes, there will be a selection of stalls and old style games to entertain. These stalls will include Cake & Candy, Plants & Produce, a “Sunshine” Stall where everything on sale will be the colour yellow and a few more surprises! We are not having the usual books and bric-a-brac etc. but it would be appreciated if you could hold onto such items as we plan to have a Church sale later in the year.

There is a list at the back of the church for names of those willing to help out on the day and also provide baking for the teas. The Church hall will be open on Friday 5th June from 7.30pm-8pm to receive any items for the Fayre. Also it is planned to set up the gazebos and hall from 10.30am on the day of the event. Any help to do these jobs would be greatly appreciated.

RIVER CAFÉ The next River Cafe takes place in the church hall on Wednesday 10th June from 2pm-3.30pm. This will be the last one until September. Why not drop in for some tea or coffee, home bakes and the all important chat? Whether you come along regularly or haven’t been before, we look forward to welcoming you there.

CONGREGATIONAL BOARD AND KIRK SESSION The next meeting of the Congregational Board will take place in the church on Thursday 11th June at 7pm. This will be followed by the Kirk Session Meeting. Copies of minutes and agendas are available to uplift. Those who receive them by email should have them by now.
