St Andrew’s day at Wings Cumbria
Mr Gregg held an assembly this year covering some of the facts about St. Andrew and what Scotland is famous for. Our young people had great fun joining in a question and answer session with Mr. Gregg.
Lots of Scottish treats were served for the YP to taste including Haggis and Irn Brew.
Volunteers then had a go at playing the bagpipe chanter.
Mr Gregg finished with playing the bagpipes.
Saint Andrew's Day is the feast day of Saint Andrew. It is celebrated on 30 November - 3 December. Saint Andrew's Day is Scotland's official national day. It is a national holiday in Romania.
Very little else is known about Andrew's life. He is said to have travelled to Greece to preach Christianity, where he was crucified on an X-shaped cross. This is represented by the diagonal cross, or 'saltire', on Scotland's flag. ... St Andrew is also the patron saint of Greece and Russia.
