BELTANE FESTIVAL INAUGURAL SERVICE
Wet Weather Arrangements
In the event of inclement weather on Sunday afternoon, the public are asked to note that it may be necessary to cancel the open-air Inaugural Service at the Cross Kirk.
Should this prove necessary, the service will be held instead in the Old Parish Church. Intimation of this change will be given by the tolling of the Parish Church bell at 5 pm., with the service being held shortly after 6 pm.
Any unexpected wet weather conditions around the time of assembly for the service, may also necessitate a late change of plan, and if this happens, the Church bell will toll around 5.45 pm (approx.), and the service will commence around 6.15 pm in the ParishChurch.
At the Church, the downstairs centre rows of seats will be reserved for the various Organisations, together with most of the aisle seats, and the public are respectfully asked not to sit in these reserved seats. They are asked, instead, to use the seats upstairs in the gallery, although the elderly and infirm may use the rear aisle seats downstairs.
The organisers hope, however, that the wet weather contingency plan will not be required, and that good weather will herald an excellent start to Beltane Week 2006.
