More than 80 people attended the successful Burns Night Supper in the Town Hall last Saturday.

Following the welcome and grace, the haggis was carried in by Bob Clark and the toast given.

Supper of the traditional haggis, neeps and tatties were served, followed by a selection of sweets and Highland shortbread.

With toasts given to the lassies and laddies, the entertainment provided the readings of some of Burns’s work, Scottish music and the Rev Mark Holden’s renowned quizzes – this time with the Scottish theme!

The evening concluded with singing of very popular songs culminating with Auld Lang Syne.

The event was organised by members of All Saints Church and all proceeds from the admission and raffle will go to Church funds which amount to approx £370.

Thanks are expressed to everyone who helped with the food and preparation, together with all who attended, and expressed the wish to repeat again next year.
