  • lorna.graham

With just over a week to launch we are in the fantastic position of a very full house!

We have less than 8 seats still available for our first ever production.............."SHOWSTOPPERS"

So, if you want to secure your place you will have to be fast!...very fast!

Our week will commence with a wee hint of what we have planned during our Sunday morning worship on August 4th in Polbeth Harwood  Church. This is a joint service and it will start at 10am. I hear we have a surprise visitor for the children that morning? We would like to extend a very warm welcome to one and all, regardless of age.

Then on Monday August 5th the doors will open at 9.50am to give a little extra time for everyone to get in and settled on the first morning at the club.

We are looking forward to warmly welcoming all our guests!
