The Burns Night Supper
was held in St Augustine's Hall on Saturday 24th January at 7.30pm. in support of the LIFE Group fund raising. So far, (after allowing for expenses) £348.80 has been raised for the local LIFE Group.
Our grateful thanks to everyone who put so much effort into making this evening a tremendous success, and those who cooked and donated delicious meals and desserts.
Our grateful thanks also to Our Lady Star of the Sea for the use of the parish hall and to Father Geddes for carrying out the ceremony of addressing the haggis, despatching it, and saying the Selkirk grace.
Here are some pictures recording the evening. Derek Hughes paraded the Haggis and Father Geddes addressed it with the Bard's famous poem
"Fair fa' your honest sonsie face,
great chieftain o' the puddin-race! ...."
Having intoned this declaration of barbaric splendour, Father Geddes dispatched the Haggis and and invoked the Selkirk Grace.
After everyone had eaten their fill, the evening ended with Scottish Dancing, and singing from
song books provided for the occasion.
