The Annual Sale at Kirk House had a slightly different emphasis this year as it was marking 25 years since the home was first opened. Our special guest was Pamela Ballantine who unveiled the plaque which had been made by the residents. Rita Norwood, who has lived in Kirk House since it was first opened, was there to assist Pamela and Rev David Campton (BCM's new Superintendent) and to make sure the job was done right! What a day it was. Lots of laughter, families enjoying time with their loved ones, and good things to eat. Thank you to all those who supported it.
Kirk House staff and residents will be celebrating 25 years of Kirk House on Saturday 8th September 2018 with an extra special Annual Sale in the grounds and buildings of the accommodation.

The fun starts at 1pm so why not pop in and join us.
