Celebrating Burns' Night

Celebrating Burns' Night

Burns' Night was celebrated (one day early) complete with all the usual traditions: piping in of the Haggis; the Selkirk Grace (by Scottish Resident Andrew Jamieson); address to the Haggis; Toasts to the Lassies (by Resident Jim Boston) and the Laddies (by Mrs Hawkins from Birtley Mews). 

Our new Chef, Kerry Nash, and his team produced a delicious Scottish taster menu of Haggis, Neeps & Tatties complete with whisky gravy; Dundee Cake, Fudge, Shortbread and Cranachan for dessert; complete with a wee Dram for those who enjoy whisky. The Haggis was donated by our Scottish Clinical Lead Michelle Hutchinson whose Grandfather, a Master Butcher in Scotland, had trained the butcher who supplied the delicious Haggis.

Quite amazingly, our intrepid Residents then enjoyed traditional afternoon tea! A very happy, and rather filling, time was had by all!
