The speaker for the penultimate meeting of Shiskine Scottish Women’s Institute was vet Charlotte Clough.
Charlotte of Arran Vets in Brodick, treated the ladies present to an interesting talk with pictures, ably assisted by Jean Hunter, which gave an idea of what a vet’s life is like in a relatively remote location. She also shared an extreme experience when it really hit her how she was the only person who could affect a positive outcome for a very badly injured pony. Happily it was a positive outcome and the pony is as good as new.
The competition for an apple charlotte was won by Alice Anderson, runner up was Julie Wilkinson and Elizabeth Ross came third. The exhibition was a favourite animal ornament and it too was won by Alice, with Kate Henderson runner up and Clare Buchanan and Gina Green third equal.
The last meeting of the season will be on Wednesday March 4 which will be the AGM where members are asked to bring in their voting sheets. The competition is a homemade sweet (four pieces) and the exhibition is a board game. As ever members and visitors are welcome at 7.30pm in Shiskine Hall.
