Burns Festival Celebration

I would like to say a huge “THANK YOU” to everyone who helped make our recent Burns Supper such an enjoyable and convivial occasion. I particularly want to thank our superb catering team, Sue Beynon, Pippa Dowsett and Janet Pickering for the delicious meal. The team were ably assisted on the night by our efficient and friendly servers – Jeanne, Katie, Sophie, Fran, Heather, Naledi and Lindo. Not forgetting our hard working dish washers – Sam, Glynnis and Alan.

Thanks also to our talented musicians – Jim Moffat on the Highland bagpipes and small pipes, Bryn Thomas on piano and our singer, Valerie Mackenzie.

I would also like to thank Bruce Tannock for chairing the event in his usual inimitable fashion and to our entertaining speakers, Malcolm Cheyne and Sue Thomas.

The night wouldn’t have been the success it was without the support of those who attended thereby helping our two charities, Brain Tumour Research in memory of Tom Hill and Young Minds in memory of Nicola Best. Thanks to all who came. The charities will share equally the proceeds of the evening, £1,415.
