Laurencekirk WRI

Mrs Vera McBain, president, welcomed members to the November meeting and introduced the speakers for the evening, Mr and Mrs. Sefton, who gave a most interesting talk on their train journey which started at Laurencekirk railway station and ended in Vietnam.

They showed many slides of the beautiful sights and buildings they had seen and talked of the foods they sampled, some very nice and others not so palatable.

This was a truly and amazing journey and both agreed they would be happy to do it again.
