Last Thursday ladies of LOFWA Coffee Morning group thoroughly enjoyed a visit to St Modan’s at the invitation of our local minister Mary Henderson who has a house there by the sea. After an enjoyable lunch many of the guests opted to visit the lovely local church while the others relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful view of the Bass Rock and island of May from the front window. The ladies would like to thank Mary and her friend Marion for their warm welcome and LOFWA committee for organising such an enjoyable outing. Watch this space for details of the next outing on Thursday, August 27.
