St Michael’s Church Christmas Services 


Carols £295.12

Our thanks to Linda and Alistair Kirkwood for hosting the carol singers who were welcomed in from the freezing starry night with hot gluyvein and mince pies.Their choice of charity is the East Lothian Foodbank and we collected £295.12.

This I will pass to Jimmy Raitt their Treasurer after I have banked the cash and issued a cheque.

Seasons Greetings to all and well done Barry for the arrangements.

Carol singing reminder

Dear village residents

Just a quick reminder about our carol singing event on Saturday 16th December and I hope we can have a really strong turn out this year.

Please come and join us and bring along anyone you can get your hands on.

Please see the important safety information for the evening from Chairman Barry Turner.

Best regards  Bill.



The village carol singing will take place this Saturday (16th).  Meet at 6pm opposite the village notice board.  Refreshments at No 8 Carberry Road after the event.

This year the event will be covered by the Society’s insurance policy and that means we are required to be extra vigilant.  There will be someone in a yellow jacket at the head and tail of the group to ensure safe road crossings etc.  Children under 16 will need to be attended by an adult.  Young children should wear something luminous or failing that something white.  We shall be following a predetermined safe route that has been checked for risks and hazards.  There should be no break-away groups.

These measures should ensure everyone’s safety whilst allowing for the usual fun, sociable evening.  Don’t forget your torch or lantern.

New song sheets will be available this year – the old ones are getting a bit tatty.


For immediate attention – Your Voice Your Choice is launched today


Hi all

As a member of the Area Partnership I am circulating this to spokespersons of all the groups with which I am associated in the town and to some individuals.  Please spread the word within the groups and to other contacts.
