    What a night!

    We had great food, poems that I couldn't understand, but the adults thought they were funny, several speeches and a great piper.

    The evening started with the mysterious haggis being piped into The Mews by David Fallows. In such a small room it was loud!! Ewan Armitage, in Highland dress was MC and gave a traditional Burns' speech after the haggis had been piped in.

    Calum Miller recited an 'alternative' Burns' poem which was difficult to understand because of all the Scottish words.

    I have never had haggis before so didn't know what to expect. It was an unusual taste!! The pudding was delicious.

    After we had eaten, Martin Allen gave a toast to the 'Lassies' and Eileen Lees replied on their behalf.

    This enjoyable evening was organised by the Social & Fundraising Committee lead by Carole Sweet.
