New Community facility on Hamilton Road in progress
Headed out tonight to Open House event in Abbey Church, attend a few times a year but mainly on Christmas Eve for carols by candlelight.
What a surprise to enter the church to be greeted by candlelight. It was a lovely setting with subdued lighting on the stage.
Eddie Reader and her band were excellent resulting in a standing ovation at the end. Eddie entertained us with not only her music, some of which was from her time with Fairground Attraction, but with stories of her childhood in Glasgow. Altogether a lovely night.
