It just happened :

Thursday 26th Jan – Burns Lunch.  The Women’s Association held their annual Burns Lunch on Thursday.  This was a well attended event, with everyone enjoying a delicious helping of the Bard’s favourite dish – Haggis, Neeps & Tatties.

Saturday 28th Jan – Men’s Breakfast.  Bacon, sausage, egg, black pudding, hash browns, mushrooms, potato scones, tomatoes, beans, toast, tea, and of-course a few of the gentlemen from Wilson Memorial.

Other announcements/information :

Military Remembrance – One of the stained glass windows in our church is specifically a memorial to two soldiers who were members of the congregation, and lost their lives in World War 2.  As records from that time are quite vague, we would like to identify if these two soldiers were the only members of Wilson Memorial who fought in the war, or if there were others.  If you can help with this, please either let George Smith know, or send details through our website contact form.

Latest Quiz now available – The first quiz of the year has now been launched, and sheets are available in the Church vestibule.  Cost 50p, with a prize for the winner.  This new quiz is titled “Christmas Menu”, which as you would imagine deals with a variety of foodstuffs that you may have eaten over the Christmas season.
