De­mand is high for tick­ets as they’re not deer!

Argyllshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

Man­ager of Mid Ar­gyll MS Cen­tre Karen McCurry was hard at work at last week­end’s Christ Church win­ter bazaar sell­ing tick­ets for the cen­tre’s grand raf­fle, to be drawn in Jan­uary. Karen thanked the Quilters for MS for mak­ing and do­nat­ing a quilt as one of the ex­cel­lent prizes. Among other prizes will be Ru­dolph, spe­cially cre­ated in the shape of a rein­deer and do­nated by kind sup­port­ers of the MS Cen­tre. And there is still plenty of time to buy raf­fle tick­ets.

IT IS time to start think­ing about Christ­mas, and a win­ter bazaar held at a Lochgilp­head church was the per­fect place to get in the mood.

With no fewer than than 37 stalls to ex­plore at Christ Church on Bish­op­ton Road, the cosy feel cre­ated by the mar­quee and church set­ting was en­hanced by sea­sonal or­gan mu­sic drift­ing over shop­pers’ heads.

Open on the evening of Fri­day Novem­ber 3 and for much of the fol­low­ing day, the bazaar of­fered some­thing for all tastes from jew­ellery and glass­ware to sausages and hand-made Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions.
