The haggis is then cut and words from one of Burns poems said out loud for all to hear.
There was even a ceremonial, if not very sharp, knife.
Wendy and I like Haggis, but it is not to everyone’s taste.

Supporters came from far and wide.
There was a short, unexpected, interlude
when the fire alarm went off and we all had to be evacuated from the building. Only a false alarm , thankfully.
We were all soon back in the warm and enjoying a magnificent meal. Pud’s provided by local councillors and friends.
A councillor’s work is never done. Cllr Derek Killingworth and host Cllr Chris Scurrell on the left, put the world to rights.
A final treat, Scottish dances from Birmingham. Thanks for a great night.
