Weather doesn’t dampen fayre day en­thu­si­asm

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Dou­glas Dickie

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

Satur­day.

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).
