This week we had very sad news that Hector Wilson’s 
wife Margaret died suddenly.
Margaret was a lovely lady
who made the tablet that many anglers bought,enjoyed and raised thousands for Stathcarron Hospice.  Margaret was also a fantastic 
baker, one of the best, there
was nothing she could not
make to perfection to be enjoyed by many, she will be
missed by everyone who knew her. I would like to pass on our sympathy to Hector, his
family and friends and all who knew Margaret through
her kindness and of course
her baking. God bless you all.
 
I do not know when the water will be open again as we still have a lot of snow.
Thank you Elizabet
