On Wed­nes­day, April 5 the mem­bers of Gil­mour­ton Ru­ral came to­gether for their monthly meet­ing. Due to a can­cel­la­tion, the speaker had to be re­placed at short no­tice and Joanne Mo­tion of RW Scott of Car­luke very kindly agreed to step into the breach. Joanne spoke of the his­tory of the com­pany which

dates back to 1880 be­fore go­ing on to talk of its more re­cent ex­pan­sions and prod­uct de­vel­op­ments. Mem­bers were then in­vited to take part in some con­sumer re­search when six of the com­pany’s most-re­cently de­vel­oped prod­ucts were of­fered for a taste-and-try ses­sion fol­lowed by feed­back from the group. This may not have been the sched­uled talk for the even­ing but it proved to be a great suc­cess and Joanne cer­tainly pro­vided some­thing very in­no­va­tive which all present very much en­joyed.
