Busy sum­mer for Gate­house SWI

The Galloway News - - DISTRICT NEWS -

Mem­bers of Gate­house SWI have been get­ting out and about lately.

Last month more than 30 mem­bers and friends set off on an af­ter­noon drive along the Ayr­shire coast.

A stop was made at Woodlands, near Gir­van, for tea and scones be­fore trav­el­ling on to Dowhill Farm Shop where there was an op­por­tu­nity to buy fresh pro­duce. It was then into Ayr for a visit to the shops. A lovely tea at the Holly­bush Inn was en­joyed be­fore trav­el­ling home to Gate­house.

In June, a group of mem­bers and friends trav­elled to Ed­in­burgh to visit the Royal Yacht Bri­tan­nia.

The first stop was in Mof­fat for morn­ing cof­fee be­fore con­tin­u­ing on to the Ocean Ter­mi­nal in Ed­in­burgh.

The group then boarded the Royal Yacht where they en­joyed a very in­ter­est­ing and en­joy­able tour which gave an in­sight into how the Roy­als and the crew lived while on board.

There was a short time for shop­ping be­fore board­ing the bus to Mof­fat for high tea in An­nan­dale Arms Ho­tel.

Mrs McConell thanked the bus driver on be­half of the mem­bers and ev­ery­one agreed it had been a very en­joy­able day.
