Auchnagatt mini bulb and industrial show


By Kirsty Brown


President Pat Anderson welcomed members and guests to the Auchnagatt mini bulb and industrial show.

A special welcome was given to the members of Cairnnorrie SWI who had come along to judge the entries.

After the entries were judged, the show was opened to the public so that they could see members' skills in all the categories.

With 210 entries it was an impressive display, especially considering the small number of members in the group.

To end the show Pat gave a comprehensive vote of thanks and congratulated everyone on a most enjoyable show.

The next meeting, which was to be the Annual General Meeting and a Craft Corners evening on April 9, has been cancelled along with all other Auchnagatt SWI events for the foreseeable future.
