Friday 20th August saw many people from both St Columba’s and St Peter’s (Linlithgow) join together to celebrate Alastair and Carola Small’s Golden Wedding Anniversary (and Alastair’s birthday). A collection in lieu of presents amassed a fantastic sum of (so far) £640 for Christian Aid. Below are some photos of the event, which took place in the Torphichen Inn.
Rev Peter, our Curate, has moved to his sending church at West Linton, to complete the next part of his curacy. His last service with us was on Sunday 25th July. We wish him well in his path of faith. We will miss you, and bid you au revoir.
Ron and Sandra Buchanan receive a Memory Book (crafted by June Bremner). A keepsake to remind them of us at St Columba’s. It contains messages and good wishes written by congregational members. Penny also crafted a Wooden Bowl for them. They are moving to Wales to be nearer their daughter. We will miss them from the choir. Ron was our treasurer. Bon voyage dear friends.
