This service marked the 90th anniversary of the inauguration of what was Stichill and Hume Woman’s Guild. Although now known as Kelso Country Churches Guild, it is heartening to know that through the many challenges and changes which have taken place, the Guild in Stichill is still going strong. In true Guild tradition, the ladies planned and took part in the service and then served Lunch and birthday cake, and there was a display of photographs highlighting events and local people over these 90 years which caused much interest.
