Burns Night Celebration - 2015

Burns Night was celebrated in style this week as 45 villagers and friends enjoyed an evening of all things Scottish. 
Sheila Barnes from the Pickering Scottish Dance Group led the dancing which was riotous and great fun. Almost everyone joined in and the dance floor was packed. 
Rona Charles addressed the Haggis and a supper of Haggis (Fletchers of Norton) Tatties & Neeps followed by Tipsy Laird (whisky trifle), shortbread,  oat cakes and Lanarkshire Blue Cheese were enjoyed. Veggie Haggis, sausages and meringues were also options for the younger guests. 
There was a table top quiz, a game of Find The Queen of Scots and the evening ended with Auld Lang Syne of course. 
Special thanks to Andy for running the bar, Pete for all the washing up and to Sarah Clark and Sara Swindells for once again working miracles in our less than adequate kitchen.
The evening raised in the region of £300 for the Village Hall refurbishment fund.  Thank you to everyone who attended and supported the event.

Don't forget Quiz Night & Supper on Feb 14th.
