Thank you

Thank you

A big thank you to everybody for your contributions towards Saturday’s coffee morning, raising money for St Catherine’s. It was lovely to see so many people there enjoying tea and coffee, a variety of home baked items and browsing the stalls. We also enjoyed a lovely evening at St Catherine’s hosting the Sillars Orchestra, performing soundtracks from the movies.
