As some of you are aware I have a big birthday coming up and to celebrate turning 30 I am doing an abseil off the forth rail bridge for the Chest, Heart and Stroke Charity. The abseil takes place on the 9th of June and if you would like to sponsor me it would be very much appreciated and help the charity greatly. Sponsor sheets will be available through myself, Simon and my mum and dad. Please just see one of us. Thank you for your support and donation Naomi Robertson.

Cupar Churches Children’s Holiday Club The popular summer holiday club for primary school-age children will take place this year at the Old Parish Centre, from Monday 5th – Friday 9th August, in the mornings.
