CHRISTMAS CARD DROP OFF
Last year we organised a very successful system which allowed us to send Christmas cards to each other so, as postage is now very expensive, we are going to do it again this year. Between Sunday 3rd December and Sunday 17th December you may drop off your Christmas cards to people who are likely to be able to pick them up from the church in the Crèche Room (Room C) just off the Hall of Friendship. There will not be a delivery service.
Please add the name of the recipient and, if possible, their address to the envelope to ensure it goes to the right person and place it by surname in the correct alphabetical pile. You will also be able to pick up any cards addressed to you from the same place up until Sunday 24th December.
CHRISTMAS CARDS will be on sale in the Fraser Hall after the church service today for the final time this year. There are five new designs available and each pack of 10 cards costs £4.50. Some older designs are still available at £4 per pack. Packs of notelets are also on sale at £3 for 10. It would be really helpful if you brought the correct money. Thank you.
The LHM have launched their Christmas appeal and would appreciate any donations of new gloves, hats, sport socks, boxer shorts, toiletries gift sets and selection boxes to make up winter gift packs for their guests. Please see the notice in the halls corridor for further information.
