Enjoy coffee, cake and company at the world’s biggest coffee morning this month.

Macmillan Cancer Support’s largest fundraising event will be taking place in towns and villages across the country on or around September 28 and  Campbeltown’s main Macmillan fundraisers are holding theirs in Kirk Street Hall on Saturday September 15, from 10am until midday.

Entry is by donation and there will be the usual stalls, including baking, tombola and a raffle.

Joining in with their own World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, the Courier Centre will be holding its event on Friday September 21, from 10am, where fresh homebaking and filtered coffee will be on sale, with all proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Support.

Those who want a weekly catch up may enjoy the Lorne and Lowland Parish Church’s lunch club, which meets every Friday, from today (September 7), at midday in the new hall.

For £3, visitors will receive soup, a filled roll, tea or coffee and a biscuit. All are welcome.

If you feel that dropping a few pounds is necessary after a little overindulgence at coffee mornings and lunch clubs, Slimming World runs classes in Campbeltown every Tuesday at 1pm, 5.30pm and 7.30pm, in the Masonic Recreational Lodge, St John Street.

Call Rhona on 07880 878906 to find out more.

To find out how to further improve your health, head to South Kintyre Seniors Forum’s next meeting, which welcomes Caroline Glen, oral health at NHS Highland, as its guest speaker.

All are welcome at the meeting in the Lorne and Lowland Church’s new hall on Friday September 21, from 1.30pm until 3pm.

Treat yourself to some live music, the following day, on Saturday September 22, at Campbeltown Picture House.

Marc Rooney, lead singer of Pronto Mama, is supported by Matt Spicer, and Kintyre’s Under Smoke and Hope Strang.

Tickets are £12 and doors open at 8pm.
