Collection: There was a good response to the collection taken up over the weekend to defray the cost of the Parish community Christmas party to be held on December 15 at the Fir Grove hotel. A special word of thanks to all who contributed.

DANGER: It has been notified that the coverings on the ground lights in Church Glen have been removed thereby exposing the electric wires. As a result the cameras are out of order. Parents please warn your children of the danger and to keep clear from the area to avoid tragic consequences as the matter is being dealt with. Residents are entitled to peace and quietness in their advancing years, it would be much appreciated. While children will be children remember we will all be old someday.
