Strawberry Walk

Once more, we held our annual strawberry walk, taking a relatively short route around Balkeerie Farm, and thanks go Ken and Margaret Durston for hosting that and preparing the way for us by cutting the long grass.

There was a wealth of wild flowers in bloom

and we looked back to the hall in apparently splendid isolation.

From the fields, we came back by the wooded track and stoped at Fiona and Gordon Brown's where Gordon kindly acted as mine host and, with the help of one of the most frequently seen barmen in the district, Andy Blackie, gave everyone a drink and a helping of fresh strawberries. Thank you, Gordon and Fiona.

We reached the hall and enjoyed a lavish Strawberry Tea, with every combination of strawberry related, tea time treat - and some raspberry ones - on offer.

The evening raised over £100 for ENKCA funds. Thanks to all who supplied food, baked, set up tables, and cleared up afterwards.

50 /50 Lottery winners for June are James Brewster £74.67; Linda and David Brown £9.33, Linda Breckenridge £9.33.
Anyone wishing to join the lottery should contact Margaret Mowatt 840447.
