THE finals of the Irish Christian Endeavour Union Talent Contest, held in Carnmoney Presbyterian Church, proved a great success.

Mrs Rosemary Carson, the Irish Junior Work Convener, in her opening remarks paid tribute to Mrs Belinda Gage, leader of Carnmoney Junior Society, for all that she had done to prepare the church and adjoining halls for the event. Thanks were also extended to adjudicators Ruth Mitchell, Dee Hawthorne and Susan Boyd; to Carnmoney Church for the use of their property; to Barbara Wilson for writing the certificates and to all who helped serve refreshments and man the CE requisites stall.

The adjudicators were highly impressed with the talented performance of the competitors.

Mrs Gwen Carson, President of the Irish Christian Endeavour Union, presented the cups and certificates.
