Speaker unable to beetle to Rural
Haugh of Urr Rural president Andrea Irving welcomed members.
She broke the unfortunate news that their intended speaker’s car had broken down in the awful weather conditions and she would not be able to attend.
However, resourceful as ever, Andrea and Maybelle Coltart had arranged an alternative activity, namely a beetle drive.
Although most people took a bit of time to remember the rules, they were soon throwing the dice like addicts. It was most enjoyable. Kate Kirkpatrick won the prize.
Afterwards, there was the usual delicious supper. The business meeting followed. Competitions: Dairy dessert : 1 Susan Smith; 2 Caroline McKean; 3 Linda Taylor.
Hen party invite: 1 Myrna Robertson; 2 Susan Smith; 3 Caroline Barnard.
Flower of the month: 1 Alison Barrett; 2 Liz Green; 3 Caroline Barnard.
