On Monday what fun we all had knitting squares for a blanket to go to Africa.  Some ladies had never knitted before and some not for many years and so all in all it was a splendid morning, enhanced once again by Mary Miller's lovely walnut and coffee cake.  Our next project is to knit little hats for premature babies.

On Tuesday morning ladies gathered once again, this time to experience some Pilates with Mary Hope.  Mary stressed that she was not a qualified Pilates teacher but was prepared to show us some simple Pilates exercises.  The ladies who attended thoroughly enjoyed their introduction to Pilates and managed to feel the benefit in just a short time.

The funeral of Ruth Kerr will take place on Friday 16th February at 10 o'clock at Kilconquhar Parish Church, Fife and afterwards at Kilconquhar Castle Estate.

Ruth's friends, Anne Walker, Brenda Kerr, Claire Bidwell, Lorraine Bend and Moira Stewart wish to express their shock and sadness at losing Ruth so suddenly last week.  However, they have been comforted by the many messages of condolence from the ladies section of The Blairgowrie Golf Club.  

Ruth's competitive spirit will live on and she will be remembered for her enthusiasm and enjoyment of golf at The Blairgowrie Golf Club.

It is with deep sadness that I have to advise you of the death of one our lady members, Ruth Kerr.  Ruth passed away peacefully at Ninewells Hospital on Thursday 8th February; she will be sadly missed.

Ruth joined The Blairgowrie Golf Club from Dunkeld.  She was a very keen golfer who always participated with enthusiasm and was a joy to play with.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.

Funeral arrangements will be advised when known.

Today we welcomed June Low who demonstrated her card making skills to the ladies.  We watched fascinated to see how folding some strips of patterned paper could produce a  lovely card.  Next, some double sided sticky tape, cut out decoupage pieces and another delightful card was on display.

Next Monday, (12th Feb) Sarah Moon will demonstrate how we should be using make up to make ourselves look even younger!

And on Tuesday 13th Feb, join Moira & I  for a spot of line dancing.

Hope to see you all then.
