A special “Songs of Praise” evening was held in Bervie Church, Inverbervie, to mark 125 years of the Church of Scotland Guild.

Seven members of Bervie Guild, three of them nonagenarians, received long service certificates from Mrs Margaret Thom (Banchory), chairperson, of The Guild Presbytery Council.

A selection of members’ favourite hymns spanning the life of the Guild, together with an explanation of why they were so meaningful to them, was presented by Bervie Guild President, Mrs Lyn Rose and sung with great gusto by the large congregation, which included invited representatives from other local denominations and also Guilds from the surrounding area.

Gina Gallacher (14), Mearns Academy “Junior Young Musician of the Year,” delighted the audience with a recital of “Baroque Flamenco” on clarsach. A night to remember!
