September already. Just been to a wonderful baptism in the loch yesterday, where the sun shone brilliantly. To see the pictures just go to www.pitlochrybaptistchurch.co.uk. Glynnis our secretary is away on holiday & we're missing her. B&B has stopped officially til the October holidays. Amaia returned safely to Bilbao and sends her love and all the students who have helped us over the summer have returned to school or university - some just starting uni this year, so it will be a great adventure for them. The lunch club visit went well and then we had a quiet week. This week it's ME sufferers. Helen, local therapeutic & sports massage is coming again this year to ease their sore muscles and Allan, a local enthusiast for Scottish clan history re-enactment, is coming to do a show and tell. We're really pleased to get this support from our local community, which helps tailor the ME week to their needs. The Highland games are on this weekend in Pitlochry and we have a young people's pipe band from Eire staying here for the competition. It's great to be part of what's going on in the community and this event is always a big day. My favourite part is when all the pipebands march down the main street together. Well worth seeing. We've got another council of management meeting this week. We're gearing up for a big splash of fundraising in October to be launched at the Baptist Assembly, and it's incredible how much organising needs to be done. We're raising money specifically for the structural improvements over the next few years - better accessibility to better serve - and will hopefully soon be ready to submit the plans for planning permission.
