Burns night was celebrated in style at our Castle Farm and Grove care homes yesterday.
The haggis was ceremoniously piped in and paraded around the room for all to see. At Castle Farm, resident John Forrest made the address and duly stabbed the haggis with his dagger (actually a kitchen knife!) it was then toasted with a wee dram of whisky. The address at The Grove was performed by our CEO, John Connelly followed by Edinburgh-born Grove resident, Donald Allan, who recited some Rabbie Burns.
The piper then took requests and residents enjoyed both traditional Scottish and not so traditional popular songs. The day ended with the singing of Auld Lang Syne and maybe another wee dram!
