BURNS NIGHT JANUARY 25th 2008

 

BURNS NIGHT SUPPER

A group of our members celebrated Burns Night in a manner befitting the occasion with plenty of haggis and whiskey!

Bill & Chris Pratt added to the authenticity of the occasion by turning up in full Scottish costume (although our on-the-spot photographer was unable to establish Bill's under-kilt preferences!).

With accomplished chef Martin Chamberlain providing the traditional food for the evening it fell to Bill to attack the haggis and President Grahame delivering the Selkirk Grace (some hae meat...). However Martin made the mistake of letting guests see a recipe listing just what's in a haggis (sheep's stomach, lung, windpipe etc!) and there was a bit of a rush to try the vegetarian haggis option laid on for Linda Taylor!

Well done Martin & Lynda - great evening!
