A joyful and uplifting service of Thanksgiving for the Life and Reign of Queen Elizabeth II in St Andrew’s Tain last evening in the presence of His Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant for Ross-shire – Mrs Joanie Whiteford.
Folk from a range of different churches and community organisations contributed and local MP the Right Honourable Jamie Stone and Councillor Alasdair Rhind also took part.
The congregation were in fine voice. The Lord Lieutenant offered some personal reflections on the Queen’s life and on the contact that she had had with the Queen in her official role and Canon James Currall preached.
Over £100 was raised in a retiring collection for the Queen’s Green Canopy fund which aims to plant trees across the UK, but especially in urban areas, as a celebration of Her Majesty’s life and reign.
