President Suzanne Bennett opened the April meeting of the Menmuir WRI and congratulated members on their success in the recent Federation Show.
Then Suzanne presented Nicky Gouck of Edzell Playgroup with a cheque for £90. The funding was raised through the proceeds of the group’s March Bring and Buy stall.

Then everybody enjoyed an opportunity to try their hand in calligraphy.
Suzanne Bennett proposed a vote of thanks.
