It was a good weekend for Carmyllie Church after fundraisers realised somewhere in the region of £2000 through a series of events.
The coffee morning held on a sunny summer Saturday in the Carmyllie Church hall was well very attended according to reports and a popular table sale was then held on the Sunday which also helped to boost the coffers.
A spokesperson for the organisers said: “Thanks are extended to everyone who attended and to the helpers who gave of their time and gifts.
“The magnificent sum of £1282 was raised which may well have increased to £2000 due to a sales table of produce which was available the following day.”
Arbirlot and Carmyllie churches had a joint service on Sunday, followed by a Jacob’s joint lunch in the Manse gardens.
This was a sociable event in wonderful sunshine.
Thanks were given to Lara and Stewart by Graham McNicol on behalf of all present.
The spokesperson continued: “It is with regret that our time with the Rev. Stewart Lamont as minister of Carmyllie and Arbirlot draws to an end, as he will retire from these charges after the joint service to be held at Carmyllie Church 10.30am on September 6.
“Please note the change from the usual time for a service at Carmyllie Church.”
During the Doors Open Days event next month Carmyllie Heritage group will welcome visitors to see Carmyllie Church.
There will also be an exhibition in the church hall about the history of the surrounding area on Saturday and Sunday, September 5 and 6.
Entrance to the church outwith the service on Sunday is from 10.30-11.40am.
