President's Dinner

26 February 2020

A fun night was had by all at Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society on the occasion of our President's Dinner, hosted by Kath at the end of her second 2-year tenure of this important position.  The food was wonderful, the company also wonderful - as was the entertaining picture quiz, dingbats and charades.


Yet again Corstorphine Ladies did not disappoint with our Xmas character-themed Xmas Bonspiel.  The winner was Avril - with a costume which prevented her from travelling by train!!  A number of our ladies could not use public transport - Anthea as a turkey being another one of them!   See the Photogallery.
Our Bonspiel was followed by an enjoyable lunch - thanks to the catering staff and also to Tina for the quiz and the Committee for our raffle.  We were pleased that Evelyn and Alison also joined us for lunch.
Well done, ladies for making our Bonspiel another great occasion.


Twelve of our members played in this annual event, with a further 3 members walking round with the players as the 'official photographers'.  For the third year in a row, our golf outing took place at Ratho Park Golf Club, where Alison H and Janette are members.  Also, for the third year in a row, we enjoyed beautiful sunshine.   The 'fun' round of golf was followed by lunch at the Clubhouse.

Winners of the wonderful prizes were Jill's team - Jill, Helen M, Tina and Myriam.


SUMMER OUTING - 12 June 2019

The tour of the Festival Theatre - backstage, dressing rooms and even onstage - was a great success - thanks to a large extent to our guide, Graham, who was very knowledgeable and humorous.  His tour lasted over 2 hours and included many stories, often funny, as well as information on the history and present day description of the theatre.  Being a part-time actor certainly added to his delivery of the tour and our enjoyment.  Worth every penny!

Our visit to the theatre was followed by lunch at Sylvester's, just around the corner.


A thank you from Audrey:   (See 2 photos in Photogallery.)

I want to thank everyone who donated wool and let them know the wool will be used.  The wee teddies are Trauma teddies used by Children 1st and the police.  The teddies are given to children affected by traumatic or distressing events.  Police officers carry the teddies in cars and will be given to children as a distraction to help take a child's focus away from potentially upsetting circumstances and help police build a relationship with the child.

The photo of the wee blankets and hats are some of the items I knit for the special baby unit at Simpson's.  The items need to be small and help to provide some normality to the parents of premature babies.  When the parents and babies leave hospital they are given a wee hat, jacket and blanket.  Although the babies don't need a blanket one is placed in the incubator beside the baby, his or her first blanket. 

We are grateful for all wool, no matter what colour or weight.
