Burns Lunch 2020

Burns Lunch 2019

Our annual Burns Lunch took place on Sunday 20th January 2019. The event started with the haggis being piped in by John and a formal ‘address to the haggis’ by Campbell. The traditional meal of haggis, neeps and tatties was then served, followed by coffee and shortbread. After this a programme of traditional Scottish entertainment took place, with readings in the Scottish dialect by Campbell, music and song by our guest Ailsa and community singing of Burns’ songs. A very successful event ended with everyone joining in ‘Auld Lang Syne’.

A Red, Red Rose


O my Luve's like a red, red rose,

That's newly sprung in June;

O my Luve's like the melodie

That's sweetly play'd in tune.


As fair are thou, my bonie lass,

So deep in luve am I;

And I will luve thee still, my Dear,

Till a' the seas gang dry.


Till a' the seas gang dry, my Dear,

And the rocks melt wi' the sun:

I will luve thee still, my dear,

While the sands o' life shall run.


And fare thee weel, my only Luve!

And fare thee weel, a while!

And I will come again, my Luve,

Tho' it were ten thousand mile!
