The first country trip of the season will take place on Saturday April 5th. The trip begins with a short walk by the loch at Garelochhead followed by a trip to The Green Kettle Tearoom. We hope that some of our friends from St Mungo’s may come along too. If anyone needs a lift or has spare seats in their car then please get in touch with Tim.
Meet at 2 pm at the car park in Garelochhead.
There is a plan to hold a service at Dumbarton Rock to commemorate St Andrew on Sat Nov 30, at the old chapel at Dumbarton Castle. This is still subject to permission being granted by Historic Scotland; if approved, the service will start at 12 noon and will be followed by refreshments in the castle.
As with previous services, the numbers are restricted to a maximum of 60 so each church will be allocated 4 tickets initially. Please remember that there are 90 steps to the site of the former chapel. Historic Scotland will not charge admission to people to those attending the service.
If anyone would like a ticket please get in touch with Tim Rhead before Monday 11th November.
The next Countryside trip will be held on November 9th and will go to Mugdock Park. As usual the trip will include a chance for a walk, a chat with friends and the obligatory visit to a tea room.
For more information please speak to Tim Rhead or Rosemary McLeay.
