For our summer outing Club members and friends met at Rose’s cottage on the outskirts of Kilrea. This is a little two roomed cottage which as been ‘restored’ to how it was when there was no electricity, running water or central heating. Pearl Hutchinson and her husband, custodians, host visits from various community groups including those with special needs. Visitors are treated to pancakes cooked fresh on a griddle over the open fire. The cottage was originally occupied by Pearl’s husbands carer when he was a child following the death of his mother.
This was a lovely evening of friendship and fellowship before breaking up for the summer holidays.
