Big Footprint Armadale

In response to the Moderator’s request for all generations to walk together and have a blether. Our Boys Brigade, Girls Brigade, Guild and our friends from St Anthony’s Church, Methodist Church and Restore Church took to the streets of Armadale on Easter Saturday walking between all the Churches showing a united presence within our community.

A big thank you to all who took time to come and walk and to all the organisers and the ladies who made the tea.
