Mother's 70th birthday party was a great successs. Something like 120 people in attendance, ranging in age from about 2 to a little over 90 and from places as far afield as Aberdeen, Kilkenny, Cornwall and Kent. There was music, there was a quiz, there were silly games. There was a great deal of food and drink. No-one suffered serious injury. We had Anglicans, Baptists, Catholics, Methodists, URC... and almost 60% of the clergy in attendance were heterosexual.
