The RNLI will be holding its pre-Christmas fund-raising Coffee Morning on Thursday 30 November in the Clark Memorial Church Hall from 10am to 12 noon.

There will be mince pies, shortbread and tea and coffee. There will be an opportunity to buy Christmas presents with stands selling RNLI Christmas Cards and other souvenirs, as well as stands with crafts, sweets and chocolates. You can also try to win a Scottish food hamper and a beauty hamper, and enter other competitions.

The local committee would like you to put it in your diary now to make sure you remember it at the end of the month. Do come along; bring or arrange to meet friends whilst shopping, and always remember you will be supporting the organisation that helps save lives at sea, on the beaches and assists with inland flood rescues.
