Thursday 25th January. Burns Supper

This year we were able to meet on the actual date of Burns Night, at our customary venue - the Willesley Park Golf Club, were they made us welcome as usual. The evening started with Don Jarram piping in the haggis and leading Bill Wilson, bearer of the haggis, around the room before Bill gave the Address to the Haggis and its ritual disembowelling. (Not as gory as you might imagine).

This was followed by the Toast to the Haggis and the Selkirk Grace (Some hae meat and canna eat, And some wad eat that want it, But we hae meat and we can eat, Sae let the Lord be Thankit!) before we all tucked in to the delicious meal.

Afterwards we were entertained with Bill's singing, Tony's stories of the life of Burns and with Colin's excellent and hilarious self-penned poem 'The Address to the Lassies'.

We finished with a rousing rendition of 'Auld Lang Syne', although most of us have still not learned the words to the second verse! Maybe next year!
