Former local minister dies

Local resident Bill McDonald died earlier this month.  His full title was the Very Rev Dr Bill McDonald and, amongst many other positions he was minister of Mayfield Church for 33 years.

You can see an obituary here, of which the following is an extract:
Dr McDonald's daughter, the distinguished broadcaster, Sheena McDonald, told the Scotsman yesterday: " Dad loved life.  He loved music - jazz in particular - and books.  He loved walking - long walks across Rannoch Moor and the Lairig Gru - and climbing.  He always had a great sense of compassion, of intellectual curiosity and of humour."
There is a memorial service at Mayfield Salisbury Church on January 8th at 11am.
