Special Day for Girvan North:

Special DayIt was the end of an era in Girvan North recently when two long-standing office bearers retired. Mr Ron Gibson has been the Session Clerk for eight years and Mr James Nicol was the Treasurer for seven and a half years. During the communion service on 30th June there was a special presentation of gifts to both of them to mark their years of outstanding service to Girvan North. The oldest member of the Kirk Session, Mr Peter Noble, spoke on behalf of the congregation and elders to express their gratitude for all the dedication and tireless effort Ron and Jim have given to the church in all that time. The Depute Session Clerk, Mrs Jennifer Ramsay, presented each of them with a beautiful Bible and “a little something” to celebrate their retirement. The Bibles were leather-bound with gold-rimmed pages and each had been beautifully inscribed at the front by the well-known local artist, Ian McKenzie, with their names, the church name and the date of the presentation.
