Carsphairn SWI members look back on their year
Members of Carsphairn SWI met recently to review and celebrate the last year.
President, Amy Clark-Kennedy reflected on the year, reminding members of a talk in January which took them on a trip to the Sahara Desert.
Another speaker in March emphasised the importance of play on child development while on another occasion creating sculptures from scrap metal was demonstrated.
In April members were very much entertained by ladies from Glenlochar SWI. They’d like to say “thank you” to these and all other visitors who gave of their time throughout the year.
At the AGM they had a special visitor. Innes was three weeks old to the day, possibly the youngest visitor ever and he was a good as gold.
A weather warning for wind in June did not deter the SWI from their summer outing to the Crafty Gin Distillery at Newton Stewart although a sizeable diversion was called for when they came across a tree blocking the road.
The trophies for the year were then presented. The Kellie Cup for most points in competitions was won by Dorothy Faulds who also won the Cuthbertson Salver, awarded for most points in the flower of the month competitions.
Heather Curry and Isobel Cuthbertson were joint winners of the Rose Bowl and Isobel McBeth was winner of the Watret Trophy. The prize for most entries was awarded to Sheila Little.
A new committee was formed to take Carsphairn SWI through next year.
The evening was rounded off by a supper on the theme of winter warmers where members brought all sorts of tasty treats to share. The evening was a great success and they all headed home with smiles and satisfied appetites.
