A message from John Phillips, organiser of the Heritage Weekend.
I’d like to offer thanks for all the hard work put in by a huge number of people, seen and unseen, to make the St Columba & Village Heritage Weekend work so well. It was very much a team effort with all sorts of things going on in the weeks running up, particularly the churchyard working parties who made such a great difference to the look of things last weekend.
There was a lot of shifting of things (before & after) and of course the accommodation of the Regiment, both of which were principally down to the Blair family. Linda Carver did a fabulous job with the church flower beds which were in full colour and much commented on. The music at the Sunday services was lovely, thanks to Linda Hewlett, the Choir and Matthew Atterton.
The BBQ was great and well attended with thanks to those who added donations of food to give us a veritable feast and to those providing cakes and the like for the teas on both days!
Roz Norris put up wonderful and very informative historical displays in both the church and the school room. And Joan Blair’s flowers in church were simply beautiful.
I can’t thank everyone enough, or indeed by name, but all the help, donations and kind good wishes that we received were just wonderful and thanks of course to everyone who turned out to support us on the day.
