February and March 2019
To finish off our 2018-19 session, we had our closing concert with the wonderful "New Day Singers". The previous week it was the AGM with entertainment from the Church Choir. The Guid is well attended with around 30 ladies every week.
During February, we had a fun Beetle Drive and with all the laughing that went on, everyone seemed to have a good time. Mrs Maggie Lunnan came along on 18 February with a talk on how to relax your body; most enjoyable. Our project evening on 11 February was a talk called "Malawi Oranges" which was most enlightening. We had a demonstration the previous week with Mrs Paxton and her hats.
On 28 January, we celebrated Burns' Night with entertainment by Jill Stevenson and her father.
Our first meeting of the New Year was a movie night; the movie was Paddington 2 which everyone really enjoyed. At the interval, ice cream was served.
On Monday 21 January, our second week, Gail Patrick came along with her two search and rescue dogs. Taz, a collie and Louis, a French bulldog. This was a very interesting and enlightening evening, learning about the work that search and rescue dogs are called out to do.
The photograph shows Gail with Louis and a visitor from Canada with Taz.
On Monday 28 January, we will be holding our annual Burns night with Jill Stevenson.
