Mrs. Kathleen Catto welcomed members to our October meeting in Rathen Village Hall, and after business had been completed, introduced our guest speaker, Mr. Andrew Kellock, a Director of The Book of Deer Project.

Mr. Kellock gave us an interesting and informative talk “The Book of Deer” with the help of a Power Point Presentation, showing many details contained in the manuscript which has been dated as early as the ninth century. The presentation covered the work done by the Book of Deer Project and also showed children from schools in central Buchan participating in an archaeological dig which was later screened in the BBC 2 series “The Great British Story.”

Tea and home bakes followed, and competitions judged, the results being:

Fudge: 1st Julie Campbell; 2nd Helen Hepburn; 3rd Erica Matthew.

Old photograph: 1st Bessie Buchan; 2nd Linda Cheyne; 3rd Julie Campbell.

Raffles were drawn and then Mrs. Margaret Rodger gave the vote of thanks. Mrs Kathleen Catto brought another enjoyable evening to a close.
