    Looking for the picnic in Elder Park, Govan! Can’t find anyone from the Iona Community. Was it cancelled?

      The picnic was at the Pearce Institute in Govan although many people took their lunch into the church yard as it was a lovely day. Sorry you didn’t know the arrangements had been modified. Elder Park wasn’t practical incase the weather didn’t stay dry. Always a problem in Scotland!
