Alastair W. Forbes  - Mission Church

About this memory

Dad is appointed Resident Caretaker off the Mission Annexe on Bells Brae.

My Dad, Mum, Douglas and I moved into the Mission Church House, which was located in the far top right hand corner of the Mission.

We used to play in the Top Hall of the Mission Church, where we played Racing Rocking Horses and also Indoor Football, which was based on ” 3 and yer in ” , we had some great games.

We were not allowed to play when there were meeting’s on in the Hall below us. Big Bummer.
