From midday onwards on June 9, the church will host its annual 'go fly a kite' and picnic event on the green adjacent to Peak Hill.

Jill McGauley, social committee co-ordinator, said: "We will be sharing an extremely large chocolate cake and other goodies to celebrate the church's birthday, which is Pentecost. We are asking people to bring a picnic and a kite if they have one, but to come anyway. There is no charge and we can promise a lot of fun. This is the eighth year we have run this event."
