Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Another coincidence – just a few doors away from St Simon’s in Partick

I try to avoid the ‘Spooky Coincidence’ theme I seem to attract, but this one deserves a mention, if only to add to the calls for the dross responsible to be ‘Dropped in it’.

Reading the report about the vandalism carried out within St Simon’s church in Partick, it was depressing to note I was just a few doors away from the church when the vandalism took place, as I’d spent a while rummaging around in the goodies in the Salvation Army’s Dumbarton Road shop.

I even picked up a little bargain too, a pair of brand-new tyres (half price) for a ‘beater bike’ I’m slowly putting together from parts. I might even finish it one day.

But the subject is the attack that tool place on the church, which I have to confess I was unaware, and was surprised not to have come across references to, as it is known as ‘The Polish Church’, due to connection with Polish person who stayed nearby during World War II.

Polish services are still held there today.
