Demand is high for tickets as they’re not deer!
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.
There was a real buzz about the bazaar.

Enjoying not her first mince pie of the season, but in fact her second, was Christ Church vestry secretary Ros Box.
