ABOUT 100 people were treated to a night of tradition at the annual St Andrew’s Scottish Society of Southland Burns Night dinner.

The event was to celebrate the birthday of 18th century Scottish poet Robert Burns, or Rabbie Burns.

Society secretary and treasurer Kathy Richardson said Saturday night’s event was a success.

“It was amazing, I haven’t yet heard anything negative.”

With four different haggis on offer, the one from Riverton Butchery was a hit.

“It was the best haggis I’d ever tasted.”

She said the programme went as scheduled, with great entertainment.

It was good to have the dinner once more at the Scottish Hall, she said.

Catered by Country Manor, the dining experience followed tradition and included the address to the haggis and toasts after the piping in of the haggis.Running Sneakersスニーカーの検索一覧【新着順】
