Hi there - you talked about whist drives, dances, dancing classes and the women's guild. I remember them all well. My mother was in the guild and was a great whist fan. I and my sister went to country dancing classes run by the wife of the owner of the garage and the exciseman's wife! I remember my mother and father both being in an amateur dramatic group too. The village hall dances were great and the children of the village were always given a day trip in the summer and a party at Christmas.We went to places like Elgin and Dundee for the day trips when I was young! Also - don't forget the Highlands and Islands Film Guild who brought a portable cinema kit to the hall every fortnight. I saw King Solomon's Mines there and fell for Stewart Grainger... I was all of twelve years old... Ahh memories.
