Good news for the Craft and Art group. We have a new venue for our meetings. The Red Cross hall in Glen Street has been taken over by Stranraer Drama Group who are happy to let our group use the hall. We have only to pay for heat and light. Parking is easy.

So we are planning to move there for our next meeting. Dates for February are 9th, and 23rd. Dates for March are strangely the same. 9th and 23rd. Usual time of 2pm to 4pm.

The Writers’ Group is temporarily suspended until Dorothy has recovered

Murder at Berryam Stables’

Murder Mystery event on Friday 14th April at Henry’s Bay House Restaurant.

You can still attend even if you don’t feel confident on taking on a role.  You can listen to the ‘evidence’ and try to guess who the murderer is and enjoy lunch at the same time.  I can assure there will be a lot of laughs!

Just to remind you of a few details, when you get to the lunch you will be given a booklet which tells you all about your character and it also tells you whether or not you are the murderer.  The book is for your eyes only!!  Only the murderer can lie, everyone else must stick to the information they are given.  A CD is played to set the scene and throughout the lunch extra clues are given.

The event at Henry’s will be 12.00 for 12.30pm start and, providing we have enough people we can have the restaurant to ourselves until 5.00pm.

The cost for the three course lunch is £21 and cheques should be made payable to West Galloway u3a and sent to my address, Mainview, Stoneykirk, Stranraer. DG9 9DH. Ideally, I would like to get payments in by the end of the month, but if that is not convenient, especially for those paying cash, you can pay me at the latest at AGM on Thursday 6 April.  I would also appreciate it if you would email your menu choices as soon as possible to help Henry’s smooth running of the event.

If you need more information, just contact me either by email or phone

     Walk 29th March

Carol S and Carol B are our walk leaders this week.

Meet at the Clock Breastwork Car Park for a 10-30 am start.

Walk along Port Rodie and through Garden of Friendship, up Lochryan Street over to Victoria Place,

back of the Creamery and on to the By Pass.

Carry on all the way down to London Rd, McMasters Rd and head back into town.

Just a thought, We could call into Reuse Centre since we are in that area, on route.

    Walk Day Out 7th June

    Afternoon Walkers / Strollers,

    Keeping you up to date with the Day Out.

    At the moment We have 18 names who would prefer to go on the Coach, [a few of these are maybe's]

    It is a 29 seater we have provisionally booked.

    Ideally we would need all the seats filled to bring the price per person down. £16 pp.

    If not filled it works out a good bit more pp.

    We feel it would not be viable if the coach is not filled.

    Have the interested walkers/strollers all put your names forward?

    As we really need to let McCullochs coaches know by Tues one way or another, to be fair with them.

    We will maybe need a rethink of a more local walk if the bus is not full.

    The plan is to eat at Craignelder once back in town, the choice is there for either dining or not for each of us.

As the Walk/Stroll is at Castle Douglas, our leaders for the day out feel it would maybe best to

have a coach for the day instead of all travelling in separate cars. So much more fun and keeps the group together.

For the 29 seater coach it would work out at £16 per person, if we have a full coach. [This is for the coach only, meal not included]

Can you let me know your thoughts on this as soon as.

We will have to let McCullochs coaches know asap to secure a booking.
