Thank you to all our members, committee and staff attended our AGM on Monday night. It was well attended with everyone enjoying a nice wee bite to eat from the the lovely buffet Anne put on for everyone and a few light refreshments. As always the bingo went down well and brought out a few of our members competitive sides. The highlight of the night was of course the Award for 25 years of Service to our Finance Officer Karen Dyson who was taken aback with the presentation of gifts she received from all the staff, committee and members of Cernach.
Congratulations to our Pet Idol winner Harry the Cockapoo

Cernach’s first Pet Idol competition was a great success; we were inundated with entries of our tenants’ cats, dogs and hamsters. As all the staff are big pet lovers it, we enjoyed receiving all the entries which made it even harder when the time came to choose a winner however we finally made a decision. The very cute two year old Harry the Cockapoo won a £20 Amazon gift card, his owners Mr & Mrs McMillian said they are going to treat Harry to some new toys with the prize.
Family Trip to Blair Drummond Safari Park
7th August 2019
Cernach’s first family trip was a wonderful success! The weather was definitely on our side for once as it was scorcher of a day. On arrival at the park everyone took in the monkey enclosure from the safety of the bus. Afterwards some of our tenants had a BBQ, took in some of the animal exhibitions, had a shot in the play park before rounding the day off with a bubble gum ice cream oh yum! We are looking forward to our next adventure wherever that might take us.
