Carol Singing & Christmas Eve Service

Carol singing around Glass is BACK

Glass Carol singing will take place on Sunday 18th December.  Those wishing to join in the carol singing around the houses in Glass please meet at the hall at 5.30pm.

We require some drivers, parents should accompany primary school children and other parents are welcome, we do also require some folks to stay at home to receive the Carol singers!

Carol singing takes place between 5.45 and 8.45pm approx.,  around the houses, if you are not going to be in or prefer no callers please do let us know and we shall respect your wishes.

The Funds raised this year will be shared with Glass Hall  and a local children’s charity.  We would welcome any recommendations for a worthwhile charity we could support.

Soup will be served on return to the hall.

To let us know if you will be staying at home to receive the singers, would rather not have anyone to call or would like to join in with the singing groups, or indeed be a driver please contact Margo at

November 2022 Round-Up

There’s been so much going on in the past few weeks in Glass so here’s a short round up.  Still to come are reports on the recent Pantomonium Panto and the St Andrew’s Family Ceilidh, but for now please read on.

Remembrance Sunday

We held our Remembrance Service at 2pm on Sunday 13th November.  The poignant service was led by Mr Calder, with wreaths being laid by James Ingleby on behalf of the Lord Lieutenant and Thomas MacPherson on behalf of the Community Council. The service closed with our local piper, Kevin Scott, playing.

There were about 40 attendees who enjoyed home bakes, biscuits, and refreshment in Glass Hall afterwards.  £62 was raised in donations which will be sent to Poppy Scotland.

Sponsored Walk

Although it was way back in June we wanted to let you know that the final overall amount raised from this event was £2,600.  Half of this has gone into the Glass Hall funds, with the other half being donated to our chosen charity, Charlie House, an organisation that helps one of our Glass family’s.  Charlie House has recently posted on their website about our donation, with Kerrie commenting on the support she receives from the community, you can read more here

A big thank you once again to Alan Duff who organised the whole event along with those who helped out on the day, particularly the Wordies with the BBQ, plus the landowners whose land we wandered over!

Bulbs & New Windows

The students at Glass Primary recently helped out with planting some bulbs outside the Hall, and we’ve got some new windows!!  Read the full report on the New Hall page, link here
