Bellshill West Parish Church welcomed over 50 people to a brunch following the Christmas Day service.

The brunch was open to anyone wishing to have a bit of Christmas food and company.  It was the first time the church had tried such a venture and they were delighted to welcome people from the local community, including some Syrian families who have recently moved to the town. The church provided transport for a number of people who couldn’t make it otherwise. Members of Bellshill Community Council also came along to help.

On December 21 Dorothy Dalgliesh, who was President of the then Church of Scotland Woman’s Guild from 1990-93, celebrated her 90th birthday. A celebration was held at St Andrew’s Parish Church, Annan. The photo shows Dorothy with Sandra Cramb and Lesley Langlands.
