Re­mem­brance Sun­day The folk of Car­munnock came to­gether, as they have done for decades, to re­mem­ber those men from the vil­lage and sur­round­ing ar­eas who made the ul­ti­mate sac­ri­fice dur­ing the two world wars. Car­munnock Par­ish Church’s Re­mem­brance Ser­vice, con­ducted by the Rev Gray Fletcher, was very emotive as those who lost their lives dur­ing 1917 were men­tioned by name. Fol­low­ing the ser­vice, the congregation and the pa­rade, led by the Saint Fran­cis Pipe Band, marched to the vil­lage war me­mo­rial. Here, Rev Gray Fletcher con­ducted a short ser­vice of re­mem­brance, fol­lowed by the lay­ing of wreaths by The Bri­tish Le­gion, the Guides and Brownies, the Guild, the Au­tumn Club and the com­mu­nity coun­cil. Af­ter the ser­vice every­one re­tired to the Cla­son Hall for tea and cof­fee.

Christ­mas night The Christ­mas Night, held in aid of Car­munnock Nurs­ery at Castlemilk Hall, was a great suc­cess, with every­one en­joy­ing a great night of fun and shop­ping. News of the funds raised will be an­nounced later. Well done to the nurs­ery staff for their ef­forts and to the ladies who joined in to sup­port them.
