A very warm welcome to the Rev. Ruth Halley, the new minister at Logie who has taken over the Logieogg chair. She is enthusiastic about our work and is looking forward to conducting the services in the Old Kirk this year.We hope as many of you as possible will come along to these services to meet her.
For most of us the winter months have been quite but the site looked beautiful in January's deep snow. Now the snowdrops are appearing it will not be long before things will be getting under way again The income from the stall at the Christmas market was disappointing this year reflected the overall low attendance on the day. The group also accepted the gift of a large ,beautifully illustrated Bible published in 1850 and we hope to put it on display soon.
FRIENDS OF STIRLINGSHIRE'S HISTORIC GRAVEYARDS
We are delighted to be taking the lead in this new fund raiding initiative along with 18 other historic sites in Stirlingshire. This new group has been constituted with the aim of raising funding to have all sites brought up to a safe standard. Each individual group has ideas for there own site, but all require repairs and maintenance. It is hoped that a large bid for funding would be more successful than several small bids and that each group could then draw the funds to have their works completed. If successful Logieogg could benefit by over £50000 towards the final boundary wall repairs. New updates will be posted regularly as progress is made.
Easter will soon be here, and the site always looks at its best when the Daffodils are in bloom. Our usual Palm Service will be on SUNDAY 25th MARCH at 10-45am. And morning worship at Logie will follow the procession downhill at 11.00am . A very warm welcome is extended to all.
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 17th MARCH (weather permitting ) if not SATURDAY 24th MARCH to ensure the site will be in first class condition for Palm Sunday. After that the other dates for the spring will be.
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.
