Margaret McKechnie died on Friday 18th August. Her funeral has now been arranged and will be held at Cardross Crematorium at 2.15pm on Friday 25th August.
It’s almost the end of July, and many of our organisations start back after the summer break towards the end of August. If you or someone you know is interested in any of the organisations or activities going on at Riverside, the start of the new session is a good time to join. Keep an eye out for our notice in the Community Advertiser, see below, and contact the church office by email, phone, or send us a facebook message if you would like to know more and we will put you in touch with the relevant leaders.
