Snippets From The Manse

 

Nostalgia is a great talking point

 

At a recent meeting of our Thursday Friendly Hour a bit of nostalgia came about when looking at everyday things that you can no longer purchase from food to sweets which created a great time of fellowship and cross-sharing. We finished with a great rendering of Calum Kennedy which brought smiles to all who attended. We are about to show Francie and Josie Part 2, then the following week a good old sing along with words. It’s the place to be!! Every Thursday 1.30pm – 2.30pm

 

BIG Coffee Morning………

 

June 10th is a morning to join us for a great time! Outside stalls, live entertainment on stage inside with Coffee, Tea and plenty of goodies. 10.00am– 12.30pm. More details inside.

 

Kitchen Dishwasher……….

 

Died on us and had to be replaced at a cost of £1300 + It is a necessary piece of equipment that does a lot of work.

 

By the time this reaches you….

 

LED lighting will have been installed in the Loudon Hall. In time fluorescent fittings are being phased out and due to the height involved the decision was made to begin a phasing programme to replace them. Working at height is now a major headache with scaffolding involved due to Health & Safety. Thanks go to those who have helped replace many fluorescent tubes for the last 22 years……and saved us a fair bit of money! The new units should offer us 15 years of usage.

 

Muck……….

 

I will be making a call for help in the near future to do a clean up at the church. On the right hand side due to on-going problems with pigeons it is simply a mess. Volunteers to the ready as it will require power cleaning. Intimation will be made in Church.

 

Men’s Fellowship………

 

Monday 8th May…….is a day at the coal face……..a talk based on my experience working down the pits including my time at Bilston Glen!! All shown on video.
