Our Guild meets in the Session House every second Tuesday from October to March. The Guild is open to all, men as well as women, and we meet for fellowship, friendship and fun. Our syllabus is always a mixture of music, talks (often about projects we support, both in this country and overseas), demonstrations and presentations. There is always tea and biscuits as well!
Normally at this time of year the Guild would be looking forward to the Summer Outing and the Presbytery Rally. Unfortunately, neither of these things will happen this year. Guild members are still keeping in touch with one another through social media and telephone calls. Christine has sent out a copy of the Guild quiz to all of our members to keep their brain cells active.
At national level, the Guild issue a weekly newsletter to keep members in touch with what is happening. The annual Guild Gathering was due to take place in Dundee at the beginning of September but this has also been cancelled. It is hoped to hold something to celebrate the return to normality later in the year.
The newsletter can be found here.
We have no doubt that Guild members are joining with the Craft Group to produce items like hats for seafarers and twiddlemuffs for people living with dementia. We hope that by the time the Guild is due to restart in October we will be able to meet up in person again.
