The D. Mac now is now connected to Wifi.
The new hall suite is now connected to wifi.
Melville Paton completed the installation work last week. He says: "There is now a powerful router in the Vestry, an Access Point in the Upper Room which relays the signal and another Access Point in the Old Hall. There is now excellent Wifi in the Old Hall, the New Hall and the Upper Room. In parts of the Church there is a weak signal. Broadband speed is about 16 Mg/s. A ‘phone or laptop somewhere in the building will latch on to the strongest signal."
Many thanks to Melville for his work and expertise. This will be a huge asset both to the congregation and to hall users.
Commemoration of the commencement of World War One.
An act of remembrance was held at the war memorial on the Parade in Fort William on Monday 4th August.
The church bell was rung at 10.55am. Present were: members of the Royal British Legion Society; Councillors Alan Henderson, Thomas MacLennan and Bren Gormley; Charles Kennedy MP; and Brian Hume. They were accompanied by a piper and two Colours' Bearers. The service was led by Rev. Dr. Adrian Varwell.
There was a short prologue followed by two minutes silence after which the short service concluded with the prayer which was said at the Commemoration Service in Glasgow Cathedral at 10.00 am that morning.
Several people stopped what they were doing and came round to the War memorial, or just stood along the railings at the other side of the road.
This was a short, but meaningful tribute to those who answered their country's call to arms after the declaration of war 100 years ago and who made the final sacrifice.
