Maybole Gala 2008    │   Service at Crossraguel    │   Pet Show   │   Quiz

Glorious sunshine beat down on the congregation for last Sundayís Ecumenical Service, in the ruins of Crossraguel Abbey, to mark the beginning of Maybole Gala Week.

During the service around 65 people of all ages sang hymns and heard scripture readings and prayers. Members from the different Christian churches in Maybole chose the hymns for the service and explained what the hymn they had picked means to them.

The event has been running for the last eight years and is organised by Maybole Council of Churches in co-operation with the Community Association. Peter Mason, Chair of the Community Association, encouraged locals to take part in the Gala Week events, and Gala King and Queen Elect Gregor Connolly and Robin Stevenson held the crowns with which they formally became King and Queen at the Gala celebrations on Gala Day. South Ayrshire Councilís Provost, Winifred Sloan, joined also attended the service.
