Over the weekend, 14th/15th January, the round stone kept by the main church gate, has been removed. It is deliberately kept there, for when the gate is open and it is breezy, in order to hold the gate in place. It might look good on somebody’s rockery but it is by the church gate for a purpose!
Please return it, if you have it. It comes from one of the Scottish islands and was collected during some beachcombing, so it has sentimental value as well.
The stone is not exactly round but more the size and shape of an ostrich egg but, being made of granite, it is heavy.
