EWSNEWS – February 2019

The story so far …

Friday 25 January. Santes Dwynwen celebration.
Reid small hall at 7.30pm.

We celebrated Santes Dwynwen with a sumptuous spread of light refreshments (suitably heart-shaped) and a brief mention of the little we know about the lovely lady. We then watched a few films based on tales from the Mabinogion.

Friday 8 February. Chinese banquet.
Priestfield Church Hall at 7.30pm.

Our banquet was beautifully organised by Lilian and we tucked in with relish. The company was delightful; we chatted and relaxed as we caught up with all the news. We were marking the Chinese New Year (or Spring Festival) as we moved, on 5 February, from the Year of the Dog to that of the Pig. Having discovered the date of birth of each person there, and from delving in to my Collins Little Gem on Chinese Astrology to ascertain their Animal sign, influencing “elements” and Zodiac sign, I was able to outline each one’s character and suggest suitable occupations.

Forthcoming events:

Friday 1 March.  Cinio Gwyl Dewi.
Mortonhall Golf Club.  7.00 for 7.30pm.

Our dinner this year falls exactly on St David’s Day and we have fingers and toes crossed for kindly weather. I am thrilled to tell you that our Gwraeg Wadd (I do hope I have that right) will be Ann Evans, who was an active member of our Society until her recent move to North Wales. Ann served as President in 1979–80 and 2005–7, and she and Daniel have contributed hugely to the life of the Society over many decades. It will be lovely to welcome them back and hear all their news.

We have chosen Mortonhall Golf Club (231 Braid Rd, Edinburgh EH10 6PB) once again and the menu is at this link.

Please contact me by phone 0131 335 3161 or email moc.liamgnull@dccswe with numbers at the very latest by Monday 25 February.

Sunday 3 March. Gymanfa Ganu.
Reid Memorial Church, large hall. 3.00pm.

Please come along ready to sing your heart out. A welcome cuppa will follow.

I look forward everso much to seeing you soon.
