It has been a long hard Winter and we have been unable to start Logieogg activites on site in March this year. The work day was cancelled due to severe weather warnings and the preceding week, which provided to be the correct decision. Fortunately the cold weather has also delayed the start of growth ,so the site was still looking fairly tidy for Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday dawned cold but beautifully sunny as we gathered for our service in the Old Kirk. The children had made palm branches and we sang a Latin chorus before walking down to the church.
WORK DATES. Everyone who visits the Old Kirk comments on how well kept it is . This is due very much to the work done by volunteers who come along on our work days to do a little extra gardening. As well as doing a little work it is a great opportunity to have a friendly chat with other members and we will be delighted to have some new volunteers along this year. Our dates for this year are as follows.
SATURDAY 5th MAY and SATURDAY 16th JUNE
On all work days we are on site between 10am and 12noon
Details of the summer openings will be published in the next news letter but remember that the site will be open for guided tours on Sunday afternoons during July and August.
FRIENDS OF STIRLINGSHIRE'S HISTORIC GRAVEYARDS
Early steps are always the slowest and can be disheartening. Two bids were put in for Your place and Community awards but unfortunately were unsuccessful. While it is disheartening at the time we remind ourselves that for every successful bid made by Logieogg in the early days there were two or three unsuccessful bids so we try again. Other bids for funding are currently in preparation and hopefully fairly soon we will have some positive news.
