On Saturday 19th December The children's party was held in the temple on Saturday morning from 10am till midday. The children all seemed to have a great day with all the usual party games and fun. The noise coming from the hall as they were awaiting Santa was especially memorable as "Jingle Bells" got louder and louder, then all of a sudden changed to exclamations and gasps of "It's Santa!". The event went very well and I would like to thank everyone for attending on such a cold morning. Thanks also to all the helpers on the day and to the people behind the scenes for all the help in organising such a special day for the children.
The "Big Kid's" party was held on Saturday evening. I think the weather dealt us a blow in terms of numbers but, for those who did turn up we were royally entertained by Alex Wilkie and I believe Angus Scott of ACDC even managed to put in a special guest appearance. Bro. Douglas Welsh P.M. and his wife Annette, Bro. Alan Walmsley and his partner Nicole and Bro. Roy McGibney and his wife Kate were brave enough to take part in the "All Star Mr&Mrs" with Roy and Kate coming out eventual winners answering all their questions correctly. There were however some eye opening answers, Dougie where did the answer "Daniel O'Donnell" come from?.
Once again I would like to thank everyone who braved the weather to make it a special evening and also those who helped on the evening, but special mention has to go to my wife Amanda, I could not have done it without all her help.
