Polmont Rural

The charity concert with entertainment by the Sweet Harmony Barber’s Shop Chorus held on Monday, November 17 was again most successful and the sum of £503 was raised with the proceeds going to the Kidney Kids charity. Many thanks to all who helped on the evening.

Probus Club

“Breathes there a man with soul so dead who never to himself hath said - This is my own, my native land!”. With, posssibly, these words from Sir Walter Scott’s “Lay of the Last Minstrel” running through their minds, members of Polmont Probus Club tackled a quiz with a difference at their meeting last week. For, in the unscheduled non-appearance of the speaker, club office bearers launched a 25-question quiz on Scotland. Enlightening, entertaining and enjoyable it was - and when two teams tied for first place there weren’t enough prizes, chocolate bars, to go round. The awards ceremony will take place at the next meeting. President Bill Cartner acted as question-master.
