Burn’s supper Lismore style was a very enjoyable, popular and well organised evening’s entertainment thanks to the talent and hard work of  organisers Katy Crossan, Dot and Bob Hay, and Duncan Brooks who together with an army of helpers managed to produce and serve a very tasty and long menu to seventy diners. The Reverend Roderick Campbell said the Selkirk Grace and David Garret piped in the haggis which Bob Hay addressed.

There was a great deal of wit and erudition in all the addresses from the Rev Campbell’s invoking of the Immortal Memory, Bob Hay’s address to the Lassies and Freda MacGregor’s reply. Freda also charmed everyone with her recitation of Tam O’Shanter.  Quality was the evening’s theme with a huge attention to detail the hall having been transformed with roses, ingenious lighting and cutlery tied with discreet tartan and the atmosphere was joyous. We were even given a programme detailing the menu, a translation of Tam O’Shanter and the words of Auld lang Syne for those not so attuned to the Scot’s.

Further entertainment followed the addresses and delicious array of desserts, when Colin Black on guitar and Murry Willis on accordion played a set and Laura Cook and Sarah Campbell both sang settings of Burns songs. Thanks to all who contributed to such a memorable evening.
