Twyn­holm SWI show re­sults

The Galloway News - - DISTRICT NEWS -

Twyn­holm SWI held their an­nual show on Au­gust 21, judged by ladies from Clare­brand in­sti­tute.

Al­though en­tries were down on last year, the stan­dard was high, mak­ing it no easy task for the judges who had dif­fi­cult de­ci­sions to make and the or­gan­is­ers would like to thank them for their time and ex­per­tise.

The evening meet­ing was an op­por­tu­nity for mem­bers to view the en­tries.

There was ju­bi­la­tion from the win­ners and maybe a wee bit of dis­ap­point­ment from those who didn’t do quiet so well, how­ever, everyone agreed there were some lovely things on dis­play. The re­sults were as fol­lows: Pro­duce sec­tion; 1 Ali­son Arm­strong; 2 Mary McMor­ran; 3 Linda Grif­fiths.

Var­i­ous: 1 Agnes Wat­son; 2 Wilma In­gram; 3 Mar­garet Miller.

Hand­i­crafts: 1 Wilma In­gram; 2= Pa­tri­cia Bee­son and Mary McMor­ran.

Chil­dren (un­der 8): 1 Ewan Grif­fiths; 2 Holly Grif­fiths; 3 Jack Grif­fiths.

Chil­dren (over 8): 1 Anna In­gram; 2 So­phie In­gram; 3 Holly Gra­ham.

The over­all win­ner was Wilma In­gram 73 pts; 2 Agnes Wat­son 61 pts; 3 Ali­son Arm­strong 56 pts; 4 Linda Grif­fiths 51 pts.

Joint pres­i­dent, Mary McMor­ran an­nounced that He­len McQueen and Isobel Wat­son would be rep­re­sent­ing the Ste­wartry in the fi­nal of the golf com­pe­ti­tion and wished them well when they went to Banff at the end of the month.

She also con­grat­u­lated the win­ners in the show and then in­tro­duced the speaker for the evening Dr Liz Matear.

Dr Matear told mem­bers about her time work­ing among the Cree In­di­ans in Canada. She was a GP who had hos­pi­tal priv­i­leges which meant she did her own ra­di­ol­ogy, stitch­ing etc.

The peo­ple were rel­a­tively well off but there was a high in­ci­dence of vene­real dis­ease which caused its own prob­lems.

This was con­trasted with Dr Matear’s ex­pe­ri­ence in In­dia where she worked in a mis­sion hos­pi­tal which was poorly equipped and the same blunt nee­dles were used many times.

In In­dia the peo­ple had noth­ing while in Canada they were well off, yet both groups had prob­lems.

Agnes Wat­son thanked Dr Matear for her very in­ter­est­ing talk and said how lucky peo­ple in the re­gion are to have the NHS af­ter which Mary McMor­ran closed the meet­ing.
