Friends of Balgay Summer Meeting

Yesterday afternoon, I attended the Friends of Balgay Summer Meeting at Mills Observatory.

There was an informative and really interesting talk by guest speaker Carly Cooper, Curator of Social History at the McManus Galleries, on the life and work of Mary Slessor.

It was also fitting that, at yesterday's meeting, there was a presentation to Gillian, daughter of Dr Hilda Spear, the Friends' Chair for many years.   Hilda sadly passed away earlier this year and the Friends yesterday paid tribute to Gillian's hard work over many years providing the refreshments at so many Friends' meetings.
