Ballianlay Rural report

Mrs Jennifer Sutcliffe welcomed members and guests to the meeting on Monday, April 1, with a special welcome to the speaker for the evening, Mrs Meg Young.

Owing to bad weather, only five members attended the SWRI Federation Show on March 23. Ballianlay did, however, win some prizes at the show, including third place for the picnic theme, third place for the summer theme and ‘highly commended’ for afternoon tea.

Wendy Heath also received a third place for her entry and showed members at the meeting photographs from the day.

Mrs Young gave an interesting talk on her time in Hong Kong and delighted everyone in attendance with a cooking demonstration, showing how to make egg-fried rice and spring rolls, ably assisted by Mrs Marion Rae.

Mrs Margaret Rose Lyle gave the vote of thanks.
