Weather doesn’t dampen fayre day enthusiasm
Hundreds of people braved the wind and rain to attend R u t h e rglen We s t and Wardlawhill Parish Church’s annual Christmas fayre on
Although attendance was down on previous years due to the weather, organisers were delighted with the support from the community.
Ways and means convenor at the church, Morag Smith, said: “Despite the atrocious conditions we cannot complain.
“People were coming in saturated, but they were coming in and my thanks go to the members of the congregation and the people of the community.
“There were many faces I recognised from the community and that was great to see.”
So far, the event has raised £3343 for church funds, but that could rise further over the next couple of weeks as the committee sell off items that weren’t snapped up on the day.
People can have a look after the Sunday service this Sunday (December 6) and next (December13).
