A HUGE thank you to everyone who contributed to the Christmas Social Event on Sunday. We raised a massive £778.10 for Edinburgh Royal ICU and had a good bit of chat at the same time.
Thanks to the Community Council for funding the purchase of the gazebo (now available for anyone in the community to borrow for a small fee) and the lights. Admittedly the solar-powered lights are not very bright, but the rechargeable strip light is better.
Thanks to all the artists for their beautiful art, to Jimmie and Murray Thomson for installing the art-boards and to Niall and Sarah Donaldson for storing the art boards, and transporting them by forklift truck to the hall!
Thanks to Liz for making all that delicious soup and juggling trays of sausage rolls and mince pies in the kitchen. Thanks to Elaine and Norma for sterling work on the raffle – there may be a raffle prize making its way to you in the near future. Thanks to Anne and Phillip for creating a little taste of a continental Christmas with their mulled wine stall, and thanks to our fabulous young musicians and DJs ( and their roadies.)
So that’s it for another year – this is the-one-who-was-running-around-like-a-headless-chicken signing off.
