The descendents of Tia will be holding a reunion to mark the Tia Church centenary on November 11 and 12.

“A committee was formed recently  to organise the events and we will announce details soon,” said Vicki McIvor.

“We are hoping that lots of people can come along and have a great weekend with family, friends, former school mates and others who may have lived and worked in the area. Anyone interested is welcome to help make this a fantastic event. “

The Tia Church will be 100 years old this year, and Mrs McIvor said a grant had been applied for to help with restorations.

“Kevin Anderson will be presenting a cheque on the Friday and unveiling plaques which dedicate the church as a War Memorial,” she said.

“Many other things are being planned, such as Remembrance Day Service, photo and memorabilia display, a barbecue and Tia Church service.
