Over 70 wonderful exhibits from very talented Crosspool folk were on display last Thursday at St. Columba Church. The four judges were impressed with the range and quality of entries. There was also a display by Mavis Roadhouse on using silk, a very complicated and delicate skill. The winners each received a certificate and a cash prize sponsored by Crosspool Estate Agents, Cocker & Carr.
The winners were: Craft Sandra Bousted for her hand made journal made from recycled materials. Art under 16s: an exceptional and brilliant portrait drawing by Neha Chonkar.

Service of Thanksgiving and celebration in St Columba’s Church for those who died during the pandemic restrictions
St Columba’s Church is holding a service at 2.30pm this Sunday 15th May to celebrate and give thanks for those who died during the pandemic, and in particular for those who felt the restrictions meant they could not properly mark the death of a loved one.
We anticipate this will be the first of a few occasions when we do this, so there will be other opportunities for those who cannot make this particular time, but all are welcome. If you wish to attend specifically to pay tribute to your relative, please let us know the relevant name so they can be mentioned and prayed for. The invitation is to all members of the church and the wider community.
