Roll Back the Stone
Edinburgh – 22nd May 2011 – Princess St. Gardens, 1pm-6pm.
What a great afternoon, the Church showing its real face out of doors and in surrounding buildings There
was drumming for the noisy, children‘s choirs, massed choir, Ficshy music in Ross Bandstand, followed by
the Scottish African Choir who got the audience to boogie to their music and organ recitals held in St
Cuthberts for the musical, wandering actors retelling the Gospel, folk singing and storytelling, Souper
Sunday, Guild and BB stall. Crossreach tent, Tradecraft and Fairtrade stalls.

The event ended with a service in the Ross Bandstand addressed by the Moderator, hymn singing with
the choirs and a pipe band from Victoria School in Dunblane.

It was so refreshing to see the Kirk let it‘s hair down (Paul would not have approved). Safe to say there
were thousands of folk there, amongst them folk from Dyce.

A new local project is being piloted in Dyce and Bucksburn by NHS Grampian to set up short health walks
for those with diabetes.

Would you like to help?
We are looking for volunteers to help lead weekly short health walks in Bucksburn or Dyce.

Free training
A one day training course will be provided free of charge which will equip volunteers with the practical
skills and ideas to lead short local health walks.

What’s involved?
It is envisaged that there will be a team of volunteers in each area, working on a rota basis (2 volunteers
per walk) so there would not be a big commitment from anyone. Volunteers do not have to be members of
existing walking groups.

How do I get in touch?
A group meeting will be held locally for those who wish to take part.
If you would like to help others get active, then contact:
Mary.mccallum@nhs.net or m.c.darcy@talk21.com or telephone Marjory D‘Arcy on 01224 722546

Thought for the Day
from Today on BBC Radio 4 on Friday 20 May 2011
The “Thought for the Day” slot at 7.50 most mornings varies from day to day. The BBC have the
good sense to use a wide range of speakers – mainly religious. A recent broadcast by John Bell of the Iona
Community was immediately arresting because of his strong Scots tongue and the conviction it brought to
the broadcast.
   John Bell started by speaking about the Queen‟s recent visit to Ireland and the questions that had been
raised about how far there should be an apology to the Irish people for some of past British history. The text
of his talk, copied from the BBC web-site, was as
