The Skein Tryst

The Skein Tryst meets in Kilry Hall monthly where we have coffee at 11am, the opportunity for a chat and a short feature of general interest, which may be a musical interlude or a short talk, before a light lunch is served at 12.30. The gathering winds up at 2.30pm approximately with ‘a few thoughts with which to return home’. 

The purpose of the group is to bring together those who do not get out as much as they would like, as well as those who live in the Kirriemuir and Isla parishes but have perhaps moved and lost the opportunity to chat to old friends.  Indeed, it provides an informal meeting place for anyone from the area who would like to come along.  Mostly senior citizens, the group comprises many who live alone, widows, widowers and disabled. New friendships have been forged, and support and encouragement is given to one another. For those who do not have their own transport, it can be provided.

The Skein Tryst was the idea of Barbara Lovegrove, who felt there was an unmet need for the opportunity to socialise in this rural location. Together with a few friends, and on a voluntary basis, they run the group. Those who attend are invited, if they are able, to make a donation of £2 to cover the cost of the lunch. Normally we meet on the first Wednesday of the month. If you would like to come along or find out when the next meeting is you can contact Barbara or Deryck  Lovegrove on 01575 560267, Judy McGowan on 01575 560236 or the church office for more details.
