Parish Outing - Scone Palace

As part of our on-going and exciting social events program, the Parish Social Committee have organized a Parish Outing on May 11, 2019. This is the first time in ages that we have organized something like this and will be a wonderful occasion. This outing will be to Scone Palace in Perth. We will set off after 10am Mass (i.e. at 10.30) and travel by coach to the Scone. Once there, we will have a tour of the Palace and lunch, followed by time to explore the grounds, shops and tea room, before returning around 5pm. Tickets, which include the coach, entrance to the Palace and lunch (plus superb clerical company - Ed) are incredibly cheaply priced at £20 for adults and (only) £5 for children. Our numbers are limited, so tickets will be on sale on a first come first served basis at all Masses next weekend. Buy early to avoid disappointment!
