Rev George Robson
|This morning, along with two of my ward colleagues and the Lord Provost, I had the pleasure of joining the congregation of Balgay Parish Church at the final service led by Rev George Robson at George’s retiral as Minister of the Church.
There were excellent addresses by the Lord Provost, Dolly O’Rourke – Head Teacher of Ancrum Primary School, Alister McGregor – Session Clerk until 2005, Les Smith – present Session Clerk, and George himself, in a lovely and appropriate service to mark the huge contribution George has made to the Church, the Dundee Presbytery, the local community in the area and the city as a whole. George has given unstinting support to the Community Spirit Action Group that represents residents in the area and his contribution will be greatly missed.
I wish George and Lynn a very happy retirement in their new home in Broughty Ferry.
The church is happy that I promote the calendar to the wider West End community and as Rev George Robson says, “I have already clicked on Day 2 today – the only thing is, you get a Bible verse, but no chocolate!”
