On Temperance Sunday (March 2nd last) Straide Church celebrated the pioneers and non drinkers of the parish. Pioneers Pins and Certificates were awarded to those who had achieved significant milestones by way of abstinance from alcohol. Twenty parishioners were honoured. The combined length of service between them, as non drinkers and pioneers, was 927 years. What an incredible achievement. Congratulations and well done to them all.
