‘Open With Care’, Huntly Writers’ new anthology of short stories, was launched to an appreciative audience at the Ex Servicemens Club, Huntly, on October 22nd. Members worked extremely hard to transform the venue into a Halloween-themed grotto of delights offering refreshments and devilishly good entertainment!

Moira, the ‘Continuity Witch’ kept proceedings on track with her hilarious participation and introductions, while members went to extra lengths with costume and performance to intrigue, thrill and scare our audience. Our talented musicians provided accompaniment to our readings, capturing the mood of each story perfectly.

And congratulations to the two teams from Gartly and one from Huntly who won the quiz prizes!

As a special treat, member Anne Forbes read her touching farewell poem to end the evening.
