Elaine Wardrop


On Saturday 22nd June, we are planning to open the Howard Centre and invite small businesses to come and take a table at our Small Business Showcase Fayre. This is part of National Weekend of Invitation. You will have the opportunity to showcase your products, sell items, advertise and make connections with others. All we would ask is for a donation of £10 per table to go to our chosen charity for this year, Beautiful Inside & Out. We really do hope folks will take up this invitation. If you would be interested in taking a table please contact: The Howard Centre01563 541337 or email Elaine on ewardrop@churchofscotland.org.uk Please forward this on to anyone you think may be interested and please share! Thank you
