APOLOGY – Ross McAldine would like to apologise for his little mistake while piping last Sunday at Remembrance Service. Due to the cold weather his reed split and his fingers froze!! Hopefully the next time you hear him play, he will be in tip top shape!!

LEGACY UPDATE – As you know, a few weeks ago we experienced another breakdown in our heating system. Repair work has been carried out and the heating is now working. However, the age of our system means that we may well face further problems. The answer would of course be to replace the system and this is indeed what is planned for phase 2 of our project once the new extension has been completed. We have however recently been made aware of a Central Fabric Fund managed by the General Trustees of the Church of Scotland, to which application can be made for things such as renewing old heating systems. The Kirk Session has decided to submit an application to the fund and if successful, bring forward the work of replacing the heating system. We have consulted a heating engineer used by the Church who has a great deal of experience of replacing heating systems. The work would involve removing the pews, pulpit and all the old pipework that runs above the level of the floor. Heat would then be supplied via modern heaters positioned appropriately around the church. As you can imagine this will be an expensive exercise and we can only afford to do it with financial assistance, hence the application for funding. Our application will be considered at the end of November and we will keep you posted on the outcome. If you have any questions, please let the office know and, in the meantime, your prayerful support for this would be very much valued.
