Fetternear WRI members toured historic parts of Aberdeen in July, enjoying a cream tea at Hazlehead and high tea at Garlogie.

August saw a change of programme with a members’ night.

Vice-president Jane Fish welcomed some very talented members to show their skills with a demonstration of Stump Work, a display of miniature teddies and a fully-equipped gypsy caravan, taste and try recipes, quizzes, jokes, and a day in the life of a minister’s wife.

This made for a very interesting evening.

Competition results were as follows:

Carved Soap 1 Jane Fish; 2 Elsie Aiken. Flower of Month 1 Elsie Aiken; 2 Dorothy Grant; 3 Margaret Salter.

Teas were served by Iris Keith and Margaret Salter.

Iris also ran the raffle and gave a vote of thanks to all who had contributed to a very enjoyable evening.

Premnay SWRI

At the August meeting of Premnay SWRI Pat Duncan presided and welcomed members to a talk on Glass Jewellery by Helen McGregor.

Helen’s interest started with her attending stained glass classes at Insch School. Thereafter glass beads became her hobby.

After explaining how to make them, she showed a great selection of wonderful beads she had brought along, from which members could choose and make small items.

After tea and the vote of thanks, the competitions were judged as follows:

A Tray Bake: 1: Ann Peter; 2: Moira Munro.

A Piece of Glass: 1: Myra Kidd; 2: Helen Radford; 3: Margaret Mack.
