Members weekend in Scotland incorporating the 2015 AGM at the Camperdown Country Park Dundee 10th and 11th October 2015

On Saturday approx 20 members met at Guildy Den, Monikie ,the home of Messrs Smith  and Webster,  for a flock visit. On arrival we were given an excellent three course meal in the shed prior to looking at the flock! We looked at the Zwartbles Flock, the goat enterprise, consisting of Saanen, Boray, and Toggenberg breeds, Silkie Bantams , three semi-tame red deer and many breeds of water fowl and guinea pigs.  We had an excellent day, ending with a cup of tea and cake. We are very grateful to our kind hosts for giving up their time and farm for our benefit.

A celebration evening meal followed at the Double Tree Hilton Hotel, some divine intervention prevented the after dinner speaker from attending but I am assured a good time was had by all.

Camperdown Country Park on the outskirts of Dundee was the venue of the AGM on Sunday 11th October attended by 32 members. There were 5 vacancies for Trustees, after the vote they were announced as Gillian Blamire, Cyril Cromie, Ailsa Dickinson, Joan Rowlands and Gillian Smith.
