It’s The Time Of Year……

…but custom cannot stale this sight…….




Another sign of the time of year is that on the evening of Friday the Second of December the Lucy Service will be held St. Magnus Cathedral - for the first time since 2019.

We won’t be attending the service as being Covid Cautious I still don’t go indoors where there will be a gathering of unknown people, but I thought I’d include links to a couple of previous pieces about the Lucy Service, as it is such a GOOD THING….



I look to when I will feel that  I can safely attend the service again.


Ooops!  I got the date wrong - it happened yesterday evening - Saturday the 3rd.

I think I had the Finstown tree lighting in my head, which was Friday.
