2020 saw the men’s association known as the Kellock Club become a North Kirk organisation. For the previous seven years the Club had operated independently, albeit that it used the North Kirk premises for some of its meetings, on an ad hoc let basis, with an annual donation being made towards the cost of heating and lighting. The Club previously met monthly on a Thursday evening in the months of September through to June with members drawn from the North Kirk and friends. Previous annual programmes have included speakers, visits and carpet bowl evenings. Over the years the Club has had a core membership of 12 and at the end of 2020 this stood at 14. A varied programme of events for Club meetings had been agreed by members for 2020, however, we did manage to have two meetings prior to Lockdown. In January we had an enjoyable quiz evening organized by one of our members and in February we had a very interesting, if a little chilly, visit to the Royal Observatory in Edinburgh, again organised by one of our members. Members are very much looking forward to a time when the Club can again meet and enjoy the opportunities for fellowship which the Club offers. At that time new members will be made most welcome.
