Vogrie Country Park


Food, Fun & Fellowship

Sunday 7 June (after Morning Worship)

After the morning service we’ll be returning to our old stomping ground at Vogrie Country Park, between Gorebridge and Pathhead, where we will again have our own enclosed space at one of the barbecue sites. To be environmentally friendly we will share cars to go to Vogrie. When buying your ticket, you’ll be asked if you have any space in your car, or whether you would be seeking a lift. We will then try to match up the numbers to make sure that everyone will get there (and back!).

Lunch will be about 1.15pm, or when we think that most people have arrived. After a brief rest, there will be a few leisurely activities for those who are interested, or siesta time for those who are not. There are lots of things to do at Vogrie which should appeal to all ages, including an adventure play area, Vogrie House, wildlife, walks and the miniature railway (all for the young and the young at heart). There is also a 9 hole golf course.

Afternoon tea will be served just after 4pm, and we’ll be packing up and leaving about 5pm (although people are welcome to stay on themselves beyond that, as we have paid for the site until 8pm). We will provide food (including vegetarian) from the barbecue, along with salad and other goodies. We’ll also supply tea and coffee (bringing along a mug is always helpful), together with juice for the youngsters. The cost of the tickets is only £5.00 for adults and £3.00 for youngsters. Maps will be provided on the day to help you find your way to Vogrie. You might wish to bring a folding garden seat (or two) with you. So – we hope to see you all on Sunday 7th June.

Buy your tickets from the church as soon as possible, or contact the Church Office to reserve yours now !
