Ramsey Bakery
Tuesday 28th July 2009

This was a popular outing with a good number of members attending, we enjoyed an excellent tour of the bakery with Jim Duncan who explained the story so far for Ramsey Bakery and described each part of the bread making process as we went round. Even though the bakery was not in production during our tour his wonderful presentation enabled us to understand what each machine did and how the various equipment was used.
Afterwards we enjoyed a meal at the Harbour Bistro to round off the evening. Many thanks to Jim Duncan of Ramsey Bakery, and to Ruth for organising an excellent outing.

Moths at Glen Maye
Sunday 19th July 2009

A few members enjoyed a morning at Rosie Wood's home to see what had been caught in the moth trap Doug had set up the previous evening. On hand to help identify the moths was local expert Ian Scott. Doug said it had been a very good night for moths, the best of the year so far, and there was indeed a large collection of moths caught. Doug also brought along the trap from his home at Knocksharry so we had plenty to see.  Thanks to Doug and Ian for all the information about each moth from their combined wealth of knowledge, and special thanks to Rosie and Chris for their hospitality.

Kentraugh Mill
Thursday 2nd July 2009

A warm summers evening saw a good turn out of members to see Kentraugh Mill. We all enjoyed a guided tour of the Mill and learning it's interesting history. Thanks very much to the owners for all they did to make us welcome and an excellent guided tour.  Afterwards we had a meal at the Cherry Orchard.  Well done and thanks to Doreen for organising the outing.
