On 22 October the Society held the customary Pea Soup and Pancakes evening.
This year we met at Söderberg’s cafe at the Quartermile in Edinburgh where Åsa had arranged a lovely and traditional meal in the very pleasant surroundings of the Pavilion.
When we had enjoyed our food and a good chat, we listened to a talk by our longstanding member, Birgitta Sugden. Her talk was called “My Jämtland”. She described how, around 20 years ago, she and David, her husband, had bought an old farm deep in the hill country. They had done it up with great skill and taste, and visit it in both summer and winter. Britta showed beautiful pictures of the farm, the landscape and the life they lived there, a sample of which are shown below.
