charitable body since 1961 which was set up by three sisters called Robertson who had in-

Stop Press Handy Anti-Midge Tip .
During our visit to Macallan, Gary and Margaret, our hosts in the Visitor Centre there,
recommended Avon Skin-So-Soft as being an unintentionally effective anti-midge treat-

Later still we're told the spray works just as well.
Just thought you ought to know.
