IT may have been cold outside, but people popping into the coffee morning run by the Guild at St Andrew’s Church in Barrhead on Saturday were guaranteed a warm welcome.

Cuppas and home baking proved to be the perfect lure and townsfolk flocked in for a heat and a chat with friends.

Sandy Farr, the church’s finance convener, told the Barrhead News: “The coffee and home baking which had been supplied by Guild members was very popular and went down a treat.

“We also had bric-a-brac for sale and a stall where people could win a bottle of something if they bought a lucky ticket.

Barrhead News:

“We also had a selection of good quality toys for sale which had been kindly donated from an anonymous source.

“We hold the coffee morning twice a year and, once again, it was well supported.

“Our thanks go to everyone who came along and supported the event.

“We raised £800 which will be for church funds.”

Sandy said anyone wishing to join the Guild would be made most welcome.

St Andrew’s, which currently has a vacancy following the retirement of Rev Jim Cowan, has a busy programme of social activities in addition to its regular services.

The Memory Lane group meets tomorrow, Thursday, when entertainment will be provided by a magician.

A book club and Bible study are also included among regular church activities.
