Girvan Rotary Club

At the Rotary Club of Girvan meeting in the Royal Hotel on the 7th February, the Guest Speaker was David Seaton who gave an excellent account of his winter-time hobby of walking stick and shepherds crook making.

He gave a display of the small number of tools he required, information booklets of designs, sticks often made from hazel branches,and horns of cattle, buffalo, and a great variety of sheep breeds. He described the various stages of work to produce each stick and handle. He has won a number of competitions and is looking forward to attending more shows,and is also willing to make a walking stick or crook to order. On behalf of the Club, Bill Paterson thanked him for a fascinating presentation of his artistic craft.
