Remembrance Day Poppies
Remembrance Day poppy display
Thanks to everyone who knitted, crocheted and sewed poppies for our Armistice poppy display. Each one was beautiful and a real work of art. Also to everyone who came along to sew the knitted poppies onto the panels of netting The whole experience was a great opportunity to get to know each other and we even had volunteers from other churches in the town and several Village residents.
The final display was installed by Anne Louise and Julian and was unveiled at church on Sunday 11th November.

Remembrance Display 2018Lots of people have said they would like to see the finished work, but for some reason weren't able to get to church on Remembrance Day, so there will be a couple of 'open evenings' for people to come and view the completed work on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th from 7.00pm to 9.00pm both evenings.

Finally, thanks to the whole congregation for the interest and support they have shown over the past few months as the project has grown from an idea to reality. It is our small act of love to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice between 1914 - 1918. We will remember them.

Village Care Home
We are planning to start holding worship services in the Village Care Home on the last Sunday of each month. The first service will be at 3.00pm on Sunday 25th November and it would be great to see people there. Elspeth has also arranged en evening of Carol Singing at the care home on Thursday 13th December at 6.30pm, so please put both dates in your diary.

Cumbernauld Musical Theatre Society
We want to place on record our huge thanks to Cumbernauld Musical Theatre Society for their wonderful fund-raising concert ‘Lullaby of Broadway‘ at the Forge Community Centre recently.
It was one of these evenings where we were close to running out of superlatives: fabulous, magnificent, sparkling, fantastic, brilliant, and talented were only some of the words used to express our delight at the superb evening they presented for us. The evening was a total sell-out and every single person there went home with a song (or two) in their hearts. So, once more, many, many thanks and ‘Haste Ye Back’.
Images from the concert can be viewed on our blog.

Cumbernauld Food Banks
We are grateful for all the regular donations which allow us to help other people every week of the year. The Village Food Bank, which is open each Friday from 11am - 12.30pm at the Parish Church, has been helping an increasing number of households in need, so every single donation is very much appreciated.
We have recently been advised that the Trussell Trust, who support the Freedom City Food Bank, are now the sole beneficiaries of all donations from Tesco at Craigmarloch and the Town Centre. Anyone, therefore, wishing to support our own Food Bank is invited to donate at the Parish Church. Heartfelt thanks from all at the Village Food Bank.
