A Message from the Chairman

ChairHello everyone,

At the time of writing, I am shortly off on a coach holiday in Scotland with a friend.  Some years ago my late husband and I drove all the way up the west coast of Scotland as far north as Inverness.  When we stayed there in a hotel full of cobwebs, I remember feeling how far away we were from London in terms of government.  We then travelled back down the east coast via Aviemore and stayed with friends in Jedburgh in the borders.  We had good weather that year apart from one day when it rained, I have never seen rain like it, I expect some of you have experienced this.  My friend and I are amateur painters so I hope to get some good photos for us to paint later.  It should be an enjoyable week looking at Castles and Gardens. 
My knitted dolls are on show at the meeting, the latest in the series of hobbies/collection.  I hope you like them!
