Message from Walter and Christine

Dear President Liz, Brother and Sister Curlers, and Friends,

Thank you very much indeed for your lovely card of good wishes for Walter and me when he was in hospital. Walter is delighted to be home now and hopes to be more mobile soon. 

We wish you all the best for “guid curling” when you are allowed to participate in these far from normal times.  

With many thanks again,

Walter and Christine

News on Walter Brown

It has come to our notice that our Honorary President Walter Brown has had a bad fall in which he sustained both a broken ankle and a head injury, resulting in a stay in hospital.

Walter is recovering and is receiving physiotherapy, in the hope that he can get home as soon as possible. Our best wishes go to Walter and also to Christine, his devoted wife, who sadly is unable to visit him at this time because of coronavirus restrictions.

Letter of Thanks from Linda McKay

As you know Ian McKay, one of our longest standing members, very sadly died earlier this month after a long illness and his funeral took place on Friday past.  Our President, Liz, had sent flowers  and a Sympathy Card to Linda on behalf of Club members  and Linda  has since responded with the message below. 

All our thoughts and prayers are with Linda at this sad time.
