THERE WILL BE A MEETING OF THE KIRK SESSION TOMORROW, Monday, 15thApril. The Agenda and reports are now available in the Centenary chapel for those members of Session who did not receive it by email.
SPECIAL NOTICE – We have had notification of bogus workmen operating in the Clarkston area recently so we thought it would be useful to advise everyone (whatever your age!!) of a few simple steps you can take to protect yourself from becoming a victim. It is unusual these days for reputable companies to go around knocking on doors looking for business so treat each caller with a huge dose of suspicion. NEVER agree on the doorstep to any work being done for you. ALWAYS tell the caller politely that you’ll think about it and will talk to someone else before making a decision (this normally deters bogus callers). NEVER pay money up front unless you receive a proper invoice (check that there’s a VAT registration number – the absence of one is a tell-tale sign that things aren’t quite right) and never accept a lift to the bank to withdraw money. ALWAYS try and get the name of the individual and/or company – you can easily check them out by phoning East Renfrewshire Trading Standards on 0800 013 0076 (confidential helpline). It is always a good idea to pause and take time before making a decision. If possible ask a family member for their advice or phone a friend in Greenbank for their advice.
