Community events at the double at Memus

MEMUS Hall was the venue for two successful community events recently.

Cortachy SWRI’s showing of ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ in Memus Hall on Friday, April 19, raised £574. Treasurer June Rae summed up her reaction in one word: “excellent!”

President Patsy Paton thanked members for supplying the supper, members and friends for arranging the film show and raffle and the community for supporting the event and sharing in an enjoyable and sociable evening.

She said: “The night was a great success and a credit to all who were involved. The money raised will go to institute funds for future projects.

“We are grateful to everyone who contributed to the effort in any way.”

A week later, the Glens’ community Spring Fair in Memus Hall on Saturday drew exhibitors and customers from throughout Angus.

Treasurer Jane Butterworth said: “It is heartening that we can attract such a range of stalls from Cortachy School and Memus WRI to artists and craftspeople from Edzell, Kirriemuir and Forfar to come to our community hall and that the public travels some distance to support the sale.

“We appreciate the work of the ladies in the kitchen who keep the customers fed throughout the event.

“Our homemade soup is an attraction in its own right.”
