Christian Aid Week is upon us from 12th – 18th May. Please help if you can.

Volunteers for the main fundraiser, the house to house collection are still needed. In addition we need helpers to count the money on Monday May 20th from 9.30am onwards. Lunch is provided and 2 or 3 people are needed to make soup for these helpers.
Vivien McAlpine has agreed to walk the Half Marathon for us at the end of May. Please think of joining her. If not please sponsor her. A sponsor form will be found on the table at the back of the church.

Mary Newton’s Afternoon Tea will be on Friday 17h May at her house : Edenbank, Stirlingacres Road from 2.30pm to 5.00pm, price £5. Do not miss this great treat!

If you can help in any way please contact me.

Thank you to everyone who has expressed an interest in the new walking group, thanks too for the extremely helpful feedback.
We’ll give it a go!! The group will probably evolve over time and we’ll continue to chat about the sort of walks folk would like once we get started.

As a start the following programme is proposed:-

Sunday 5th May. 11.30am:
Kirkcudbright Riverside and Cumstoun – 6 miles - easy

Sunday 9th June. 12.15pm:
Screel Hill – 3.5 miles – strenuous (if you’re happy to provide a lift please bring your car)

Sunday 7th July. 12.15pm
St Mary’s Isle – 3 miles – easy

Sunday 4th August. 11.30am
Kippford/Rockcliffe circular – 3 miles – easy with some uneven paths (if you’re happy to provide a lift please bring your car)

Some general information:-

Meet outside Kirkcudbright Parish Church – Don’t forget your sandwiches!
All timings are approximate, depending on the length of the morning’s service!
The walks are ‘self-supporting’ in that participants are responsible for themselves. We’re not a club that folk join, simply like-minded people getting together for a walk.

Further reminders about forthcoming walks will be posted on the Church notice boards.
