Diocesan Picnic at Culbokie on the Black Isle - 26th. May 2009
There were about 50 people who attended the picnic at the home of Carol & Martin
Roff to meet with Rosemary Kempsall the Worldwide President ,Sheila Redwood our
Provincial President and their husbands.
Bishop Mark Strange got proceedings under way with mid-day prayers, and then everyone
was free to eat, chat, ride the train, play croquet, try out the maze and generally
enjoy the extensive gardens.
After a brief shower around noon, the weather turned sunny and warm, and a visit
from a dozen ten day old ducklings, made everyone smile.
One of the highlights of the day was when Rosemary, Sheila & Lynne (The Diocesan
President) enrolled three new members, and welcomed another member from the South,
into the Diocese.
Some members from the Aberdeen Diocese made the long journey across to join us, and
thanks go to everyone who made it such a lovely day.
