About the memorial: Communion Table- broken up when the 3 churches united, but the memorial board was retained. Various mission stations existed at Aitkenhead, Nackerty, Newlands, Tannochside and Thornwood, the earliest meeting in Nackerty Scool being in 1866. Bothwell Parish Church of Scotland, Park Parish Church and Bellshill Free Church became associated with the growth of Churches from the various mission stations. Thornwood Church was opened on 24 September 1893, Bothwellpark Free Church in 1896 and Aitkenhead United Free Church in 1905 [now closed and demolished]. In 1933 Thornwood, Aitkenhead and Bothwellpark united to form Viewpark Parish Church. The Church as it is now along with the Small Hall was the former Thornwood Church and Hall .
