project on the life and work of Sadie McLellan
Artist in Glass was created, evidence of which can be seen within
the old church.
In 2006 we

history; life stories from within the community, with
a talk on covenanting times launching the
season with tales of gore and treachery. The nearby villages of
Crawford, Douglas and Sanquhar have well recorded legends from these
times. Crawfordjohn was thought
to harbour a spy!!
