Busby Men

Busby Men
The last Tuesday of the month has for the male members of the congregation become a time when ‘Busby Men’ meet in the White Cart for tea/coffee and a talk from 10.30am to 12 noon. This is not a Church organisation, although many of those who attend are members of our congregation, and as such it is open to all men who live in or around the village. In that respect the meeting has a relatively low profile and might benefit from more publicity. Given the time of day that the group meet it naturally attracts retired men, although that’s not a pre-requisite. Discussion topics are many and varied with some recent examples including ‘Rudolph Hess in Busby’, ‘Banking in the East’, ‘Health and Community care in East Renfrewhire’, ‘A family's escapades in Europe during the last century’, ‘the world of Opera’, ‘Ocean Valour’ and ‘Enterprising Scotland’. The full programme for the next session is below and we would be pleased to see old and new faces alike.
