We wish you a Merry Christmas and health and happiness in 2011

... while the snow lay round about, deep and crisp and even ...

... in the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan, earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone ...

MERRY CHRISTMAS!         All the very best for 2011

CANCELLED: Marchmont Christmas Tree Lighting and Concert

The Gillespie's choir is unable to make Saturday and given the continuing weather and conditions we are not going ahead with the inside concert.  The Christmas Tree lighting has already been cancelled by City of Edinburgh Council due to the weather.
The scheduled MSCC meeting next week is also in doubt - it looks very unlikely if this current weather continues.  If anyone knows of a decision we need to make before the new year can they let us know.
