Waverley Communicators Alternative Burns Supper

This year Waverley Communicators held a Burns Supper at the fortnightly meeting, rather than a separate event.

Club President Johanne Burns was the host for the evening. Member John Wood gave the Address to a Haggis, accompanied by bagpipe music through speakers.

The life of Robert Burns was remembered through The Immortal Memory delivered by Johanne Burns.

Then, there was a spoken recitation of A red, red rose by Jacek Lasota followed by a recording of the singing version.

Member Ollie Hoskins gave the Toast to the Lassies for the first time.

A recording of the Reply from the Lassies was provided by Joyce Falconer (of River City and Taggart fame) given at the Govan Kingston SNP Burns Supper 2017.

A guest very kindly provided a rendition of the tale Tam o’ Shanter.

The interval provided an opportunity for members and guests to partake of Scottish delights: Irn Bru, haggis spring rolls, and tablet.

After the break, member Moira Beaton challenged members to participate in Robert Burns themed table topics, before the evening was brought to a close with a vote of thanks and singing of Auld Lang Syne.
