After many years of dedicated service, it has been announced that Robert McTaggart has resigned from all football matters at Camelon Juniors Football Club. In a long association where Robert held the post of both Secretary and President his commitment and endeavour has been fantastic and ensured that CIFC have maintained their presence on the Junior Football scene. Tags would like to thank his fellow committee and the support he has received from principal sponsors, David Morton, Denny Engraving, The Canal Inn and Flowers by Aileen and hopes that they will continue to support Camelon Juniors in the future as he looks forward to spending more time with his family and continues to be involved with the social club.

Is it difficult for you to get to Church on a Sunday morning? Do you enjoy the typical Sunday service or is it ‘just not your cup of tea’? Either way, why not come along to Camelon Parish Church on Dorrator Road (just next to the Copper Top) and try our brand new Thursday evening worship. This new weekly event starts tonight. It promises to be different, an alternative to the traditionally anticipated services usually offered on a Sunday morning, it could be just what you’re looking for.

Likewise, the same welcome awaits you for our regular Sunday morning service at 11 a.m. We invite everyone to come and join us, young people from tiny tots to teens and the not so young, all starting off in church before the younger ones make their way through to Junior Church for fun and games. Come and join us for either or both services. CPC community Charity Shop continues to thrive and we are delighted to have recently made further community donations to more local schools. Thanks to the local community and members for continuing to support us by visiting and making donations to the shop. Drop in to see what we have on offer, or even just for a chat.
