As a new venture, the village hall held it’s first Burn’s Night celebration on January 25th, with 51 villagers and friends enjoying a wonderful evening.  Many came dressed for the occasion sporting all forms of tartan.
The evening commenced with Glen McGill welcoming everyone.  A three course meal was then served with the haggis piped in by a Scottish piper. The piper and his wife then led the entertainment and had many up dancing a traditional reel.
Philip Taylor gave a toast to the ladies and in return Ann Thomas gave a toast to the gents with Glen giving a speech about Rabbie Burns.
The evening ended with Ron Kirk leading everyone singing Scottish songs and finishing with Auld Lang Syne.
Many thanks to the committee of Glen McGill, Margaret Smith, Angela Forrest and Christine Campy for organising this memorable event and in doing so raised £260 for the village hall funds.
