THE BURGH MOVEMENT – STEVENSTON

A meeting of those favourable to the formation of the town into a police burgh was held in the Woodside Hall last night – Mr Alexander McGregor, of the Ardeer Foundry, in the chair.

The chairman gave the result of the plebiscite on the question, which showed a clear majority in favour of the scheme.

Rev. A Morris Moodie moved, and Mr George Sinclair seconded, that it is expedient that the town should be formed into a burgh, and that steps be taken to have this carried out.

There was no amendment, and the motion was unanimously carried.

A large committee was appointed to get the resolution carried into effect.

STEVENSTON ESTABLISHED CHURCH

On Friday evening an anniversary soiree was held in the Parish Church, Stevenston – the Rev. John Grahame, M.A., B.S., pastor, presiding. There was a large attendance.

The chairman, in the course of his address, referred to the position of the church and the various congregational schemes. The statement was of a very gratifying and encouraging character, showing that the church attendance and membership had considerably increased during the twelve months of Mr Grahame’s pastorate.

Revs. Messrs J. D. McCall, Ardrossan; W. Lee Ker, Kilwinning, Forrest, Stevenston; Benvie, Scone; and Patrick, Kilmarnock, afterwards delivered addresses.

The choir of the church, led by Mr Reid, sang several anthems during the evening with good effect.
