At the Hillhall’s WI’s February Meeting Joan Crawford gave an inspiring talk on her active life before she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Joan had been an active family woman with a full time job, who was busy with her award winning motorcycle racing before she was diagnosed.

With great spirit, determination, imagination and a positive attitude Joan has made an equally full and enjoyable life writing poetry and historical articles, making and furnishing doll’s houses, avid collecting of various artefacts, doing charity work and travelling far and wide. In fact, she never seems to have a dull moment.

The competition for a Humorous Valentine Verse was won by Maud Wilson with Margaret McCracken coming second and Heather Fleck, third.

Betty Beattie was presented with Birthday flowers and she also won the Ballot Prize.

The committee provided lovely pancakes for supper as it was Shrove Tuesday to finish another enjoyable and interesting meeting.
