Collieston & Slains WRI members met this week to celebrate their Burns Super.  After a delicious meal the evening was rounded of by hillarious entertainment from guest speaker Laura Greig as she shared with us her interpretation of how Scotland had influenced our nation and the wider world.

SWRI – full of Christmas cheer

Collieston & Slains ladies were in a very creative mood for their last meeting of 2014.   With the help of seasonal music and festive fare the ladies snipped, sprayed, pinned and created a variety of Christmas decorations for their homes during the festive season.  A ‘Secret Santa’ gift topped off the evening, and a happy time was had by all.  Merry Christmas to you all from the WRI

Paula Hawthorn from Newburgh shared with us the story of KAZURI BEADS.  In Swahili Kazuri means small & beautiful.  Paula actively works through her church to raise money to help give a new life to abandoned babies in Kenya.  After a short presentation ladies had a try themselves at making their very own KAZURI bead necklaces  as well as trying on a selection of Kenyan scarves.
