The Banner Group was the brainchild of Isobel Bagwell,  and is now known as the Arts and Craft Group.   It has been going for over 10 years when she was joined by Grace Lamont and May Traquair.  As the goup established,  others joined including Hilda Roberson who now organises it.

The purpose of the Group was to make anners for the Church, which are now displayed in the Church,  plus the Christmas ones which are displayed during Advent.  
Over the years, we have also put our talents to Arts and Crafts which we sell at the Church Fete and Christmas Tables in the Church Hall leading up to Christmas to make funds for the Church.

The group meets on Turesday afternoons from 1.30pm to 3.30pm and we are always looking for new members no matter their level of experience, male and female.

If you can't join us but wish to contribute your craft work, all donations will be gratefully received.

Feel free to come along and joint us.

Knitting for HIV Babies
As you must be aware, given the amount of bags brought to and taken from the church on a Sunday, that the project of knitting tops & blankets for babies born with HIV is still going strong.
To date, the number of tops delivered for distribution is 2572 with more ready to go.
This grand total has been achieved not only through the ladies of our own congregation but also from  churches in Calderbank, Chapelhall & Wishaw.  There have so been donations via Margaret Muir, the Guild Convenor, from Guilds throughout the area.
Many thanks go to all who have contributed their time & effort to this project.  Many thanks also to those who have donated wool and given monetary donations to allow us to purchase wool for the knitters.
This is an ongoing project and all the knitted goods are gratefully received so, like they say on Strictly, "Keep Knitting"
