At the most recent meeting of Port Bannatyne SWRI, held in the Port's village hall (pictured), the ladies were given a demonstration in making 'cakepops'.

In the absence of the president and vice-president, secretary Wilma Cameron not only conducted the most recent meeting of Port Bannatyne SWRI but also provided the demonstrator.

Her niece, Shirley Strachan, from Largs gave a most interesting demonstration of ‘Cakepops’. These turned out to be cakes dipped in chocolate, decorated and placed on a stick like lollipops. Although Shirley works full-time as a nurse she found time to develop her hobby and now provides decorations for all sorts of celebrations.

Some members attempted the technique and all went home with a cakepop.

In her vote of thanks Florence Shand commented how nice it was when someone who had grown up in Port Bannatyne returned to help out at the rural.

Competition winners are as follows:

Knitted Tea Cosy - 1 Jean McMillan, 2 Jessmay Morton, 3 Florence Shand.

Plain Gingerbread - 1 Jean McMillan, 2 Jessmay Morton, 3 Marie Scott..
