Daye and Mr P. Ferguson. The flowers for this service are being donated by I. Kowal. On tea duty are H. Pullar, M. Hoggan and M. Erskine. On Tuesday, February 11, at 2.30 p.m. in the hall, the Guild will have Bible study with each member bringing a short reading.

Strathcarron Singers

On Tuesday evening the church echoed to the beautiful sound of 50 voices singing a variety of lovely songs. The choir raises thousand of pounds for the Hospice with members travelling from Killearn in the west, North Berwick in the east and everywhere else in between. Grateful thanks are extended to treasurer Ann’s family and Derek who helped the Guild ladies make the event such a success, and of course, to the singers who shared their talents with the appreciative audience.
