John Phillips, South East Scotland Quakers

James managed the [Kelso Meeting House] project from start to finish, overseeing everything from the stonework repairs to the rewiring and the acquisition of electrical and equipment and furniture.  He left the meeting with a fine building well-suited for purpose that pays an ever-increasing role in the life of the town.  He also left the local meeting with a full set of safety and instruction manuals, and with the building in a state that could be used immediately by a group of Quakers that found that it needed to have no worries about whether they were conforming with all legal and other requirements.
