Message from Douglas Robertson

Children, Young People and Family Worker
I can’t believe that as I write this the summer holidays are almost over! It has been a challenging summer for me personally, and I would like to thank you all for your kind words, prayers and flowers whilst my dad was in hospital. As I write this, he finally got out from the Golden Jubilee after almost four weeks in, but thankfully he seems to be progressing! The summer may have been quiet on the fro of all things Baillieston St Andrew’, but I wasn’t kept quiet as I was fairly busy with Mure Memorial’s annual holiday club. The week was very tiring but a great success. As you know we are planning to run a holiday club in October, starting Monday 15th, the week the schools are off.To get this off the ground, we are running a three day event, planned to be between 10am and 12noon Monday to Wednesday. If you wish to help out with this venture, then please do not hesitate to get in touch with me. We are particularly keen for younger leaders, so anyone in S3 is more than welcome to come and join us!

The other piece of news is that ML Stone from Scripture Union is moving on. She is staying with the organisation, but moving east to be regional worker in East and Mid Lothian. This creates a gap in the SU group at Caledonia Primary. If you would like to help out on a Friday lunchtime, then I would be most grateful for some assistance. Jack Wallace, a young person from Mure Memorial and a former pupil in Caledonia comes to help, but due to work commitments he can’t be there every week. You would need to go through the SU accreditation scheme, but feel free to speak to me for more details.

I look forward to another year of being involved in the Sunday School and Boys’ Brigade, and I hope to be more involved with the Girls’ Brigade and the Scouts. Thanks as ever for your continuing prayerful support.

Douglas
