To keep in touch with the local community, ladies from Hamilton South and Quarter churches and friends knitted and crocheted 500 chicks which were filled with chocolate eggs. The eggs were donated by members of the congregations and 100 donated by the local ASDA store. The chicks, along with an Easter message, were delivered to the local primary school and three local nursing homes.

Following an invitation in the Guild’s ‘Lockdown’ newsletter to show their love by having a virtual soup lunch and donating to Guild projects, Springfield Cambridge Guild took up the challenge and have so far raised £395.

In the summer one of their members made jam from the fruit in her garden which raised £265.05 bringing the total amount raised for the projects to £660.05.

In addition the members were asked to submit their most exotic soup recipe. The winner was Moira Aitken for her Coral Soup recipe. Moira is pictured enjoying her soup.

Debbie and Gary Tarver were admitted to membership of Edenshead Parish Church on Sunday September 27.

Debbie and Gary have been attending worship since moving to live in Auchtermuchty and are valued members of the congregation. Their admittance had been postponed since March due to the Coronavirus restrictions, but took place two weeks after the church reopened for worship.

As Edenshead is in vacancy, the service was conducted by the Rev Susan Thorburn, Eden Tay Cluster Mission Development Worker.
