Crochet Every Day in November Challenge

The Children’s Hospices Across Scotland (CHAS) have challenged crocheters across the nation (and further away!) to crochet every day in November to raise funds. Aliet Ray has taken up the call to crochet a warm winter cowl. Will you support her by donating a small amount towards her goal of £150.00 and perhaps be the winner of the Colours of Clynder Cowl?

Crochet Every Day website for more information.

Her JustGiving page is: Hooked in Clynder (please do leave your name to go into the draw for the cowl) or contact her on for more information. Or see notice at the back of the church.

Eco Congregation Thought for the Week

We already know not to overfill the electric kettle. To save even more energy, switch the kettle off as soon as you see steam, the water has then boiled, you don’t need to wait for it to switch itself off.
