Warm greetings from the Manse!
I wanted to highlight a couple of events which will take place this Saturday, 18th July.
Firstly, Simon and Bridget Fraser are opening their gardens at Corbet Tower from 10am to 4pm. It will be the 25th year of opening their gardens, and there will be 25 pyramids of sweet peas, so we are encouraged to bring along some scissors and cut ourselves a bunch! There will, needless to say, be no refreshments this year, but we are encouraged to take a picnic. There will be no entry charge, but there will be a donation box, and donations will come to Cheviot Churches, which we really appreciate. Obviously social distancing will be in place, and also please note that there will be no toilet facilities. It should be a super day, so please support it (and pray for dry sunny weather)!
The St Cuthbert's Coffee Stop is opening up again this week, so please pop along for coffee/lunch. On Saturday evening at 7.30pm they will hold a Quiz by Zoom to generate much-needed funds for the project. It should be great fun, so please do support it. Tickets are £5 for individuals and £15 for a household, and you can donate your money by going online - click HERE - or type 'St Cuthberts Coffee Stop' into Google, and it should come up. Leave your name and email address, so an invitation can be sent.
