As mentioned, on Saturday September 13th we and about 90 others went along to Simon and Iona’s wedding and 40th birthday party. When they married in December 2013, they had a small wedding ceremony with 18 people attending, so it was always their plan to combine something for it and Simon’s 40th. 1,272 more words

Lovely Loch Lomond

On Saturday we took our first train ride to the village of Balloch at Loch Lomond. We intended to “sleep in” but ended up on the 9:53am train – £16 and 45 minutes later we were at the lake.    297 more words

Next Sunday afternoon (14th September) sees the return of Messy Church at the Forge Centre, Balloch after our summer break. The fun starts at 3pm and this month we’ll be looking at part of the story of Moses – the baby in the bullrushes – and there will be songs, stories, crafts, activities and finishing with a meal together. 13 more words
