Andersons the Baker
On the 31st December 2015, Andersons the Baker at Goschen closed for the very last time. Many a school pupil will remember spending their lunch money (sorry mum) at Andersons before wandering back to school.
Wendy worked at the shop for 46 years and before that at the Craigshill shop. Before it closed, we took a trip down memory lane and the photographs below show the shop and also Wendy (who many of you will recognise from your school days). Well done Wendy for putting up with us all!
Christmas Lights Switch On at Uphall Community Centre
The Christmas Tree Lights were switched-on at Uphall Community Education Centre on Saturday 5th December 2015 by Jonathan Moore. Jonathan has, over many years, worked hard for the betterment of the village. Local community stalwarts, Myra Macpherson and Irene Bishop, helped Jonathan press the button to switch the lights on.
Below are a few pictures from the evening:
