The speaker for the evening was Trudy Norris a medical herbalist who gave a very informative talk.

The competition was won by Doreen Whitelam, and Beryl Hudson won the raffle. A garden party was held at the home of Jean White to raise funds for Scotter WI, there was a tombola and book stall, refreshments of strawberries and cream were served.
