SVP News….The Christmas Party, postponed because of the bad weather, will be held on Friday evening, 29th April in the Hall. We considered moving it to January/February, but the weather then, is still unpredictable. Lent follows and so we decided that April 29th would be a good time and hopefully, everyone can come and ‘let their hair down’!

· This year’s Christmas Party is scheduled for Friday, 16th December (weather permitting!……)

Caravan lets for 2011 are available to parishioners who otherwise, would not get a break. There is a list for names on the noticeboard. We have 4 lets available this year. Please remember that we sometimes have more requests than spaces available.

The new SVP President for West Lothian will be local man William; the first parishioner to hold this post for a very long time!

Volunteers…..We are still looking for people to assist with the Children’s Liturgy on Sunday mornings.Please contact Maria Ford for full details. Training will be provided.

Book Sale: A reminder that all books on the shelves in the Hall are for sale at only 50 pence each. Proceeds will go towards the Flower Fund.
