Ladies raise a glass at cock­tail evening

The Arran Banner - - Letters - Jenni Turn­bull

Mem­bers and guests of the Shisk­ine Women’s In­sti­tute en­joyed an even more so­cial evening than usual at their last meet­ing which took place at The Tee­room in Shisk­ine where the theme was cock­tail/mock­tails.

Adding to the fun at­mos­phere of the restau­rant lo­cated at the Shisk­ine Golf & Ten­nis Club, hostesses Piet Johnston and Clare Buchanan per­suaded their hus­bands, and a few of their friends, to as­sist as waiters for the evening.

The Tee­room’s head chef Alan Dun­lop also con­trib­uted to an im­mensely en­joy­able evening by demon­strat­ing four sim­ple and de­li­cious canapés which were then served ac­com­pa­nied by a cock­tail.

The com­pe­ti­tion win­ners of the evening were Alice An­der­son who won the quiz, the favourite evening bag was won by Julie Wilkin­son and Jenni Turn­bull won the best wrapped par­cel. Pro­ceeds from the sale of the parcels will all be do­nated to Chil­dren’s Hos­pices Across Scot­land (CHAS).

The next meet­ing of Shisk­ine WI is on Wed­nes­day Jan­uary 9, in Shisk­ine hall at 7.30pm where the speaker will be Fiona Hen­der­son. The com­pe­ti­tion is a win­ter soup and the ex­hi­bi­tion will be a bracelet.

Look­ing the part, Ian Buchanan, Dou­glas Johnston, Ron Woods and David Scott were the cock­tail waiters at the WI meet­ing.
