Friendship Circle – Victoria Sponge in a Mud House!

July 2nd, 2013 by Church Admin Leave a reply »

Our 2012-2013 session finished with the annual outing. This year a happy band of members and friends set off for the National Trust property of Logie Mud House.

Dating from the 19th Century, it is one of the last surviving mud wall buildings, made from mud and straw, in Scotland. Originally built as a school house, it then became a church. it fell into disrepair until rescued by the Trust’s Little Houses Improvement Scheme. It is now rented out to Joe Wishart who lovingly cares for the building and its heritage. Joe gave a very entertaining talk and provided us with a wonderful afternoon tea, Victoria Sandwich baked by himself!

The sun shone for us and it was a really lovely way to end this session.

The committee are working hard to organise entertaining talks when we meet again in the Autumn.
