1988 Church Halls

Thanks to Scott MacVicar for sharing this photo from 1988. Pictured of course is the former Old Parish Church Hall at the High Blantyre cross, a year or so before being demolished.

I’ll say it again, they just don’t make buildings like this anymore.

Brian Weaver Some of my earliest memories come from this building. It had a sound and smell all of its own – wooden floors, stone steps, and no carpets. Even the plumbing and the front doors sounded different. I suppose it was the first public building that most children got to know.

Pamela McKeown Carole Mackie Rickard mind this🙄

Violet Elder Happy memories in that building. Brownies , Guides, Sunday School and concerts.
