The Galloway News - - DISTRICT NEWS -

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.
