Tree dec­o­ra­tions

The Galloway News - - DISTRICT NEWS -

A craft evening was held by Kirkcud­bright SWI.

Mar­garet Hainey helped fel­low mem­bers make a pa­per fir cone us­ing a foam egg as a base.

She had cut small squares of dec­o­ra­tive pa­per for them to use. They folded the pa­per into tri­an­gles and pinned them to the egg, over­lap­ping as they moved down.

Mem­bers will fin­ish them at home with dec­o­ra­tive bows so they can be hung on Christ­mas trees. Mar­garet was thanked for demon­strat­ing a new craft.

Every­one then had tea and the raf­fle was drawn be­fore pres­i­dent Molly Broll was con­grat­u­lated on her 5km spon­sored walk in Toronto, in aid of lung trans­plants.

This was a tremen­dous event which in­cluded a marathon. Al­to­gether more than £26,000 was raised.

Then mem­bers held the AGM and elected some new of­fice-bear­ers:

Pres­i­dent – Chris­tine Collins; trea­surer – Carolyn Solly; sec­re­tary – Les­ley Mil­li­gan; fed­er­a­tion – Chris­tine Collins and Mar­garet Hughes; press – Carolyn; teas – In­grid Davies; com­pe­ti­tions – Mar­garet Hainey; raf­fle – Jo Brown and Liz Mackie.
