Dalziel St An­drew’s Par­ish Church Morn­ing wor­ship con­tin­ues at 11am on Sun­days, with a creche also avail­able through­out the sum­mer. The ser­vice in­cludes Bri­tish Sign Lan­guage sign­ing and elec­tronic note tak­ing to as­sist those who are deaf or hard of hear­ing. For those un­able to at­tend the church there is an op­tion to share in the live wor­ship via the church’s web­site at www.dalziel­stan­drews.org.uk, or catch up later on You Tube. Al­though the Sun­day school and Fu­sion Bi­ble class have now fin­ished un­til Au­gust, there will be plenty for the young­sters to do each Sun­day, with the start of this year’s sum­mer hol­i­day club at 11am. It will meet each Sun­day in the church and will take the form of an emoji story, with lots of fun and games planned as well as snacks be­ing served on the day. This pop­u­lar club for pri­mary aged young­sters, en­ti­tled Pro­fes­sor Potty’s time trav­eller’s tales, will run in the church from Mon­day, July 30 un­til Fri­day, Au­gust 3, be­tween 11am and 2pm each day. It will in­clude a meal which will be pro­vided for the chil­dren each day, with no charge made thanks to the help­ful sup­port from the Awards for All grant. Reg­is­tra­tion forms are re­quired to be com­pleted for all chil­dren who will be at­tend­ing the club, and these can be ob­tained by drop­ping into the church or con­tact­ing the church of­fice. Even though the two prayer groups are hav­ing a break for the sum­mer, there re­mains an op­por­tu­nity for parish­ioners to lodge a prayer re­quest. This can be done by com­plet­ing a form which can be found on the church’s web­site or by con­tact­ing the of­fice of Dalziel St An­drew’s church on 01698 264097. South Wishaw Par­ish Church Wed­nes­day’s mid­day ser­vice will be fol­lowed by re­fresh­ments. Morn­ing wor­ship on Sun­day at 11am will be con­ducted by Rev Terry Moran. The church would like to thank all who sup­ported the re­cent Awards for All sub­mis­sions. Ro­tary Club Last week marked the start of the sum­mer ses­sion of the Mother­well and Wishaw Ro­tary Club. It sees in­di­vid­ual mem­bers speak­ing on a sub­ject close to their heart. Thurs­day’s speaker was Jim Rae, who spoke about his new­est in­no­va­tion - the hum­ble cashew nut. Jim has vis­ited Africa a num­ber of times, pri­mar­ily to im­prove the qual­ity of wa­ter through an in­fil­tra­tion sys­tem which he de­vised. His most re­cent trip was to Malawi and Gam­bia. Jim is now chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of a Unicef project called, the West African Cashew Trad­ing Com­pany, which has the twin aims of grow­ing a cashew tree line from Sene­gal to the Gam­bia and build­ing a cashew pro­cess­ing op­er­a­tion in the Gam­bia. Jim said it is hoped that the plant­ing of the tree line will even­tu­ally halt the spread of the Sa­hara desert into the Gam­bia, and that the pro­cess­ing cen­tre will en­sure that the many thou­sands of cashew farm­ers will not have to ex­port their pro­duce for pro­cess­ing which will mean more profit to the farm­ers.
