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.
