President Angus Rex welcomed 38 members and friends and introduced guest speaker David Wishart - trustee and convener of Kirkpatrick Durham Recreation Association.

David spoke about KDRA's beginning in 1995 when locals recognised a need for better community facilities.

In 2000 land was purchased partially assisted by a grant from the association, which was landscaped and outdoor play equipment installed, while a derelict dwelling was made into community meeting space.

David thanked the association for its continued support, which most recently saw funding awarded in January to assist with the refurbishment of a storage building.

Those in attendance then enjoyed afternoon tea.
