Carnival Advertising Sticker: Please pick up a sticker (or two!) from the back of the church.
The days are getting longer, the weather is not improving - it must be Spring and Kirk Carnival preparation time!
Attention is now fully on recruiting helpers and seeking donations to cover all aspects of the event. As everyone knows, the Carnival has become a real highlight in the village over many years but can only be successful if the community supports it. If you haven’t been approached to help by one our Conveners (arm twisters!) then give one of us a call, there are plenty of jobs to suit your talents.
Our Plant stall is always a good attraction at the Carnival and the team is looking for donations of plants and cuttings so when you are tidying up the garden after winter, remember the plant stall. Norma McBeath (613763) or Peter McKerrell (872448) is waiting for your call.
The White Elephant stall team is looking for donations which can be uplifted if necessary (no large items of furniture or electrical goods please). Please contact Mary Reid (613770) or Kathryn McCartney (613741) who will be happy to help.
Your once a year chance to get freshly baked pancakes and scones(sometimes still hot) will, as usual, be available although this year you cannot watch the ladies at work. However, the team involved have agreed to work their little socks off on the morning of the Carnival and, fortunately, you will still get to buy their wonderful baking at the ‘Freshly Baked’ stall in the Carrick Centre.
In addition, to all that lovely baking to take home, the Carnival tea room is a very special place where you can catch up with old friends or make new ones while enjoying the highest standard of home baking Houston Kirk has to offer. And remember your tea and coffee with homebaking will cost the princely sum of £1.50.
Last year over 500 tea tickets were sold – can we beat that record this year – please help us try!
Of course there are loads of other stalls needing filled: -
Books, DVD’S, Soft Toys (lots of good condition cuddly toys needed to give them a new home), Tombola prizes, Bottle Stall, Toiletries, Jewellery, Scottish Stall items, Home Baking etc., etc.
If you can help with any of the above then please phone any of the Committee below.
This is a special year for Houston and Killellan Church with the new and eagerly awaited extension, let’s also make it a special Kirk Carnival and if you have never been to one then come along, you may just be surprised.
All proceeds for the 2015 Kirk Carnival will go towards the new Church extension.
