A great day had by all at our company trip to the Farm Park on
Saturday 12th May 2012. The weather stayed nice for us for most of the
day although we did have a couple of showers! The Junior’s especially
enjoyed feeding the animals around the farm yard and the Explorer’s
enjoyed playing at the park and on the jumping pillows!
Around 70 people attended the Cookery
demonstration by Mauread Anderson when we were shown various ways of
preparing, cooking and serving some quick meals. She showed a variety of
starters, main courses and sweets, all made with little preparation
time. The presentation of the food was admired and the tasting was a
great success. Everyone was given a copy of the recipes shown, and
Mauread very happily answered questions from the audience. It was an
excellent evening rounded off by a supper.

annual coffee morning, and £443

All the guests at the wedding of Bert and Betty had a superb time.
They all turned up in their wedding finery and joined in the evening of
song and dance. A lovely supper was served and the gifts were auctioned,
the auctioneer being Jimmy Lindsay who did a wonderful job and the event
raised over £500 which goes towards the Church renovation fund. The
bride and groom were supported by Eric McKinnon and young Sarah
McDonald. Betty Moffat and her team of helpers must be congratulated and
thanked for the success of the evening.
