On a bitterly cold morning, the Lorne and Lowland Church Guild had the perfect recipe for warming people up.

The old church hall, complete with new heaters, offered a warm welcome to visitors at a coffee morning last Wednesday.

The ladies of the guild not only served piping hot tea and coffee but they also sold hot water bottles complete with hand-knitted covers.

Also on offer were children’s cardigans and various other items hand-knitted by Sissy McCallum.

The event raised £763.31 for guild funds.

A spokesperson said: ‘We are very lucky as many people who couldn’t make it provided a donation or baking.’
