Minister’s interests

Guest speaker at the latest meeting of Kirriemuir Probus Club was the Rev.

Ian Murray from Kilry, minister to the Isla Parishes. Introduced by President Ted Williams, Ian told the members about his interests outwith his calling, collecting and dealing in antiques, a hobby which helps fund his love of restoring vintage sports cars – one of which, a 1924 Alfa Romeo, he has raced in Italy, in the Mille Miglia Rally.

Ian passed round a variety of obscure and interesting antique items, asking the members to write down what they were, or what they were used for.

This led to some weird, imaginative and amusing suggestions, occasionally correct, and in asking members to show their appreciation to Ian, Jim Smith thanked him for a most interesting and informative talk, although he was grateful the competition results were not read out!

President Ted Williams closed the meeting, reminding members of the annual outing on Wednesday, June 6 to the Glasgow Transport Museum.
