We held another very successful Burns Night Celebration on January 25th, serving a traditional three-course meal with leek & potato soup, followed by haggis, neeps and tatties and a choice of puddings. Clive Harrod and his team of helpers worked very hard in the kitchen.

Our entertainment this year included Clare Loosley singing some traditional Scottish songs accompanied by her husband Chris on the guitar.

A Scottish Piper piped in the Haggis and Jo Smith in his role as Master of Ceremonies read the Selkirk Grace before stabbing the haggis. Following the meal Jo proposed the "Toast to the Lasses" and his wife Dil replied on behalf of the Lasses.

The floor was cleared and we were entertained by "The Kindred Spirit" who played Scottish music and reels for us to dance to. Liz Goes acted as a very professional caller to help those of us who were not too sure of the dances. We had great fun with the Gay Gordons, Strip the Willow and the Eightsome Reel and other dances. There were lots of laughs!

The evening ended with Auld Lang Syne, and we felt that we had done justice to the Scottish Bard.
