L.O.F.W.A.

The outing this year was to Ayr with the warm sunny weather helping make the day such a huge success. Many thanks to all who donated raffles for the buses and special thanks to Marie and all at ASDA warehouse Earlsgate for providing the lovely picnic lunch for our members. We hope that all our members enjoy the summer break and hope to see you all when we start back on Thursday, August 27, when we will be going on a half day trip to Kirkcaldy. Those going to St Monans on Thursday, July 16 are reminded that the bus leaves at 10am. Finally, the committee would like to thank all the ladies involved with the recent fundraising lunch which raised over £500 for our funds. Thank you for all your hard work.
