Friday 24th January. Burns Supper

Although it was a day early, 56 members gathered at the Golf Club for our second Burns Supper and very good it was too. Andy and his bagpipes were there to serenade us with a selection of Scottish tunes and airs, some more familiar to Sassenachs than others.

We all sat down to a starter of Scotch Broth before the Haggis was piped into and around the room. Bill then gave us the 'Address to a Haggis' before ritually cutting it open. This was followed by the Toast to the Haggis before we sat down to tuck into the Haggis with the traditional Neeps and Tatties, followed by Cranachan for dessert.

Wine flowed, everyone had a good time, Barbara was presented with a birthday cake accompanied by the usual tune from the throng and finally we all stood for a rousing chorus of Auld Lang Syne, although some of us need to practise the second verse before next year!

An excellent evening.
