Presentation to Wemyss Struss

Andrew and Wemyss

Today we had a wonderful afternoon function, at which a RHSV Award of Merit was presented to our much-loved president, Mrs Wemyss Struss. Wemyss is shown above with the president of the RHSV, Dr Andrew Lemon, who is the latest recipient of a jar of marmalade from Wemyss. Wemyss started this tradition (as she says she could not cook a sponge) of presenting homemade marmalade to all guest speakers, when she became president of the society in 1990. There was no way she was going to miss handing one to him.

Wemyss has done much more than present marmalade to speakers, and a presentation was launched today outlining her work leading the society as it restored the museum building.

Congratulations Wemyss, from us all.
