See in the New Year in a family friendly gathering as we Ceilidh, eat and play together. No tickets, no charge just bring something to share for the potluck supper. We will provide some drinks but feel free to bring your own if you could drive after drinking it! We will see in the New Year with our Hogmanay Watchnight which was the traditional Watchnight for Scottish churches. We are also looking at games, quizzes and other activities. Family, friends and neighbours are all welcome. See you there!
