When word got around that the Fellowship Group had taken up the challenge to make a poppy fall for the 100th Anniversary of WW1, the jungle drums and grapevine went into overdrive. The feeling of wanting to be part of this, once in a life time project, appealed to many women and soon, beautifully knitted, crocheted and felt poppies, were arriving at church, from not only our local churches but from all over the Stewartry and beyond. Some came with no identification as to the donors, but we knew that they came with much love from guildswomen, friends, and individuals, we felt quite humbled. We would like to thank you all so much for being with us on this memorable journey. We had well nigh on 2 thousand poppies. The next step was to sew them to a net, which as you can imagine was quite a task. However, with a small team of volunteers, we rose to the occasion and completed the fall before the due date. It measured 7 wide by 16 foot long.

The Fundraising Group held a very enjoyable Autumn Concert with musical entertainment from Music 4 U, Hilary and Douglas Irving and a local ukulele band which had us all singing long forgotten hits from the 60s and 70s! The total raised was £422 for Church Funds. Thank you to all who bought tickets and donated raffle prizes.
