November 2021

Old Backbrae

Here is something totally different! These paintings were done by local artist, Peter Sim. I'm sure you will all agree that he definitely has a talent. These are truly beautiful paintings.

This first painting is Backbrae Street a long time ago (with the Church in the distance) around the late 40's - early 50's. How different it looks from today. Many people will remember the town as it was.

Burns Church
Burns & Old Church

As well as some of the windows being placed in today's church, a marble plaque in honour of Dr William Jeffrey (Minister of the High Church for 21 years until his death in 1910) is now displayed inside.

This painting shows the Burns Church which was demolished in 2002 after merging with Kilsyth Old Parish Church in 1975. Soon after the union of the two churches, some of the stained glass windows were removed and placed in today's church building. The church bell can also be seen outside our church.

Here is our church as we know it today. 

October Full Moon

Here are some images of the October (Harvest) moon taken on Thursday morning 21 October. These were taken by one of the camera club members - Joe Higney (full permission granted!). What a sight it was.

September 2021

Here we are in September again. We've had a glorious summer and hopefully there may be a lovely autumn ahead of us.

Here is a variety of photos; one taken from the "cooches" looking over the Kilsyth Hills, then in the Colzium and the Burngreen.

How fortunate we are to have these beautiful places on our doorstep.

Here are a few photos taken in the Peace Garden.

 

"The Gentleman" (rose planted in honour of Bill Gracie's 100th birthday) is blooming at last, 13 months since it was planted. What a beautiful colour it is.
