Annual Dinner and Awards

Prize Winners
A great time was had by all at our annual dinner and awards at the local Ingliston Equestrian Centre. After an informal meeting where we read short prose and poetry on the theme of 'home and family', we enjoyed a lovely three course dinner followed by coffee.

It's a great excuse to spend time socialising with each other, which we don't get the chance to do at weekly meetings, and to reward the hard work throughout the year. It's always very encouraging to see newer members being awarded some of the prizes and hopefully it will inspire everyone even more. The roll-call of winners follows:

President's Cup     Kathleen Hammond
