City Mission

We were encouraged, on a Wednesday afternoon, before playing soccer in Logie Green, to  go in for a Paris Bun at the City Mission."

City Mission

"We kids would go along to the mission sometimes.  Your religion did not matter, it was something else to do.   

I remember, probably in 1958, that some of the girls on our crowd went off on a summer camp with the mission to Abington; yes the one on the A74.  

So some of us lads decided we would cycle there on visiting day.    We were told it was just after Penicuik.    We thought, OK, that is not too far.   My bike was bust so I borrowed one and its gears were not working. 

So there we set off with some sannies and bottle of juice.    Yes  we know now Abington is a lot further than Penicuik.  In fact, it's about 42 miles from Edinburgh, and all seemed to be up hill going there. 

We made it, and the journey back seemed much shorter.     Admittedly, there was not the traffic of today, but could you imagine any parents today allowing there 12/13/14 year olds to head off on that journey.    Then I suppose we did not quite tell them the whole story, but in all honesty we did not know ourselves.

Anyway, it was "safe out and safe home" a round trip of 84 miles in bike without gears."

City Mission Today 

"Judging by its well-cared-for state, the timber hall was still very much in use when I took this picture in November 2009.  The hall is now surrounded with houses:

City Mission, Logie Green Road  -  2009

Danny Callaghan, Falkirk, Stirlingshire, Scotland: February 16, 2011

Note

Danny tells me that he passed the City Mission this week and it is still very much in use.  It is in Logie Green Road, near the corner of Logie Green Gardens, almost opposite the new  Beaverbank Business Park.

Evidence of the 21st century can be seen in the 2009 photo above:

-  the car

-  the 'speed hump' road calming measure

-  the parking ticket machine on the pavement.

But, see also 'Recollections 3' below for the name of this mission.

City Mission, Logie Green Road  -  2009

"The name that I remember for this building was the 'City Mission', but the building that's there now seems to be 'Logie Green Mission'.  I'll check the situation next time I'm in the area, then the web site can be updated if necessary."

Danny Callaghan, February 20, 2011

Danny Callaghan added:

Update

"I had another look at the Mission in Logie Green Road earlier this week.  The only name on the building now is 62 Logie Green Road.

I spoke to the next door neighbour who told me that the mission is still being used by very regular members, including one who used to be a well known soap box preacher at The Mound."
