Help is at hand…

By Alex Russon / December 8, 2020

The damage caused by the affliction of alcohol and drug dependency is a tragedy the world over and, just like the Covid pandemic, it’s a condition which doesn’t respect class or culture. You can be dependent on alcohol or drugs at virtually any age whether you’re unemployed, employed, retired, rich, poor or anything in between. It’s a blight on society across the globe and the region of […]

Winter League Golf At SGC

By Alex Russon / December 7, 2020

Back in the eighties, when I last played the game of golf with a degree of capability, I’d often be found out on the course with one of the two Douglas brothers; Jack or Keith. Sadly, I then discovered alcohol (unrelated incident) which I devoted myself to for the next two decades, a sorry tale […]

The lead up to Christmas is well underway and at Stonehaven Baptist Church this week we began by sharing a message on the topic of ‘challenge’. A challenge is something we can either turn from or face up to, so we looked at how best we can embrace challenges rather than running for the hills. […]

It was pleasing therefore to find him step up to the plate this week and deliver a […]

Stonehaven Baptist Church gathered once again this Sunday, although ‘gathered’ is used in its loosest sense these days. Many aren’t able to attend due to Covid issues so watch online via Youtube, you’d be welcome too, just type the church name into the Youtube search box and away you go. Or pitch up in the […]

Ernie’s Debut

By Alex Russon / November 29, 2020

Some 38 years ago I pitched up at Stonehaven Golf Club for the very first time, an adolescent kid in burgundy stay press trousers, white socks and loafers (I know ?). My family had just moved up from Birmingham and my father reckoned golf was the way forward if I was to make new friends, […]

Stoney Golf

By Alex Russon / November 25, 2020

This weekend marked the third round of the Russon/Douglas assault on the Stonehaven Golf Club winter league doubles competition (quite a mouthful) and for the first time Douglas actually showed up. He needn’t have bothered mind you, his rustiness contributing towards an inglorious combined score of 70 which leaves us in ninth position, or, in […]
