KIRK ANNOUNCEMENTS

Sunday, 23 July 2017

THE KIRK OFFICE Louise will be away from the office from 27 July – 9 August & Margaret Duncan will be looking after the office in her absence.

THE GRAPEVINE All contributions for the September issue should be with the Editors, c/o the Kirk Office, 16 Cramond Glebe Road, EH4 6NS or e-mail : cramond.kirk@blueyonder.co.uk by Sunday, 30 July.

A MILE OF MEMORIES On Saturday, 23 September Richmond’s Hope, the charity which supports bereaved children, will be creating A Mile of Memories along Portobello Promenade. To help them create their mile, the Sunday Club hopes to fill 2 “memory sticks” – decorated sticks with a groove in the top which each hold 45 £1 coins. So, bearing in mind your old £1 coins are no longer valid after October, we’d be happy to help you use them up! Any £1 coins would be very welcome & can be left in the box in the Session House. Further details on Richmond’s Hope can be found at www.richmondshope.org.uk
