September in Eassie

Members of ENKCA met in Castleton Hotel, by kind permission of Verity and David Webster, to discuss the progress of fundraising and plans for the winter season ahead.

The monthly 50 /50 sweepstake was drawn and the prize winners were - first prize £74.65 to David and Debra Ritchie of Eassie and consolation prizes of £9.34 to David and Melissa Lawrence of Balkeerie and Sine Robertson of Eassie.

This month’s pictures were taken on a ‘Chairman’s Challenge’ outing for members of Angus federation of SWRI. Members of Rurals from throughout the county met at Coupar Angus for morning coffee, drove to Halliburton, walked to Lundie Crags where they stopped to admire the spectacular view over the countryside and the Long Loch and enjoy their packed lunches. They then descended and drove to Lundie Hall where Lundie SWRI, the home institute of Chairman, Jenny Arbuckle and Secretary, Nora Meikle, laid on another spectacular view – home baked afternoon tea.

Photographs supplied by kind permission of Frances Gazzard of Lundie institute and Susan McLaren of Cortachy institute.
