Bin Blaze

Inverkip refuse bins were targeted when several places had their bins set on fire on the Wednesday before new year. The Fire Brigade had to be called out and Inverkip Church Hall bins and others were destroyed. Worrying was that some of these bins were by homes and the fires took place in the early hours. Anyone with information should contact the Police on101.

Church Services

The Christmas Eve Church Services in Inverkip raised £376 for the charity Children in Poverty Inverclyde. Thank you to those who contributed.
