The Waverly Craft Group Sale - Wednesday 18 November

The Group is holding a sale at The Dower House between 10.00 am and 12 noon.  All proceeds go to charity.

As well as the sale, they will also have a craft supplies corner - books, thread, kits and material are available.

The Group meet in the Dower House on the second and third Wednesday of each month at 10.00 am till midday. They work at a variety of crafts and sell the articles made at a number of sales throughout the year. All their proceeds go to charity.

At their meetings they not only 'craft', but indulge in a bit of coffee and chat as well. They will always welcome anybody who would like to come along and join them or simply have a look at what they do. Sometimes they work on joint projects, but also often get on with their own piece of work.

They look forward to you coming to meet them at their craft morning and, especially on 18 November, to see what they have for sale. There will be many Christmas items and gifts.
For any further information please call 333 1512 or 334 3005.

The Wee Shop
We are delighted to announce we have a new tenant for the (so legend has it) smallest shop in Scotland.
Kerstin Marks will be moving in soon to sell her home made bread and cakes.  For those of us who shop locally, you'll be more familiar to seeing Kerstin with her stall outside the manse in Manse Road.
