Mari Pollock Thompson Going to High Blantyre Parish with my Gran on Sunday was a ritual. I remember putting money in her envelope which she filled every week. Me and my twin Margo were told how to behave during the service, as our Gran would not tolerate us being disrespectful in the house of God. However, she didn’t mind giving us a mint imperial through the sermom. Those were the days!
Irene Dickman Many happy memories of Sunday services and of course leaving half way through to cross the road to the hall for Sunday School. Can’t remember the lady who was the teacher, her first name was Betty I think. Maybe someone knows her full name. Mr Silcox was a lovely man.
Liz Allan Rev Silcox was a great minister and person
