Our AGM and Afternoon Tea

Tea pouring crop

A huge thank you to everyone who attended our recent AGM and Afternoon Tea and who generously donated to help with the campaign. Over £900 was raised.

There were no changes to the office bearers: Lala Burchall-Nolan remains as Chair, Glen Heggs as Vice Chair and Chris Johnston as Treasurer. Chris took over from Tom Dowman during the year and Tom remains a committee member along with Sandy Millar and Bea Holden. Lala thanked Tom for all his work as Treasurer. She also thanked Dorothy and Peter Hadden for their invaluable support during the five years of the campaign.

Many thanks to Jeanette Heggs and her team who provided some delicious home-baking, laid out the tables beautifully and kept the teas and coffees flowing. Everyone had an enjoyable afternoon and were brought up-to-date on the campaign.

We do not expect to know when the Public Local Inquiry into the Linfairn wind farm application will be held until August at the very earliest. The PLI could be held late autumn or possibly next year.

 

You’re invited to tea and a glass of bubbly

Invitation to Afternoon TeaCome along next Sunday to celebrate our recent success and hear the latest on what we believe is our final wind farm application – Linfairn.

There’ll be some delicious home baking, Pimms, homemade lemonade, a glass or two of bubbly and tea and coffee. And of course we’ll have one of our famous Straiton raffles.

We look forward to seeing you at 2pm on Sunday 23 in the McCandlish Hall, Straiton.

We’d love to see you at our Stroll and Barbecue. Our route might well be new to many walkers as it’s not long established, plus there are alternative shorter routes. Great views of the glorious countryside from all routes. Non-walkers are very welcome – come along a little later to welcome the trekkers back. There’ll be all the latest campaign news, a fantastic raffle, photo competition and lots of delicious food and drink to enjoy.

Donations very welcome, contact our co-ordinator Katie at ckcnisbet@btinternet.com
