Helen is in the Hot seat again !!

Fire Engine
Midlothian County held their Centenary lunch yesterday in Edinburgh and the toast to the Game of Golf was given by West Vets Captain Helen Faulds (Douglas Park) Her humourous and witty speech was interrupted by a fire alarm, which only added to the occasion as doors to George Street were opened and 177 lightly dressed people trooped out onto the street on a bitterly cold Edinburgh afternoon. Spirits were high and everyone remained cheerful... it gave some another chance to have a chin-wag with long-lost friends. After about 15 minutes the all-clear was given and the company resumed their seats... Helen carried on as if nothing had happened and, at its conclusion, her scintillating speech received a standing ovation.
