Car­sphairn SWI mem­bers look back on their year

The Galloway News - - DISTRICT NEWS -

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.
