The Spirit of Christmas Nativity Event 2022

It was that joyful time again were the children of the Parish took part in the Spirit of Christmas Nativity Event. There was a delay in getting things brought in and started. The children took it in their stride and were quickly off the mark getting everything on the Christmas tree and Nativity Crib. They were  all multitasking going between the tree and Nativity while scoffing the amazing Christmas cookies made by Helen Loudon.   Mince pies, short bread and goodie bags supplied by Fiona Kilpatrick, Thank you ladies the children really loved them. Thank you to everyone who orgainised and helped make it happen. Special thanks to Pat and Pete Mackie  for buying our new Nativity crib and Elizabeth and Gordon Stewart for the tree. Thank you everyone!  God bless!
