On Friday, 21st October, Friends went to Pollok Park on a glorious autumn day, to have our last look at Burrell for 4 years. We met at Pollok House, where we had a tour from three experienced and knowledgeable guides. Most of us had visited before but there is always something new to see and an intriguing new story to hear.Lunch was taken in the Burrell restaurant. Our tours of the Burrell Collection were led by FoGM committee members and long time Burrell Guides, Margaret Anderson and John Rattenbury. The museum was suffused with autumn sunshine, the stained glass sparkled, there were treasures and stories galore and a soprano was recording songs for an STV programme! She sang “Time to say Goodbye”!. A perfect day.
