A Community Burns Supper – SK Style!

We celebrated Burns Night a day early with a Community Burns Supper in the Parish Church Hall on Tuesday 24th January. Our three community cookers, Fiona, Helen and Linzi, were a dream team! They made it look easy! We are so thankful for all of the preparation and planning they did to make this event the success it was, not to mention the hours and hours of work on the day itself. Thanks also goes to all the choppers and peelers, table setters and the Parish Church for their contribution too. We were also helped by a great bunch of young people who volunteered to serve and clear up, you did yourselves proud – thank you!

Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it,
But we hae meat and we can eat,
And sae the Lord be thankit.”

– Robert Burns

The hall was packed with folk enjoying conversation, good food and amazing music! We really can’t thank the musicians enough for their impromptu contribution to the evening. It was so lovely and made the evening extra special. The soup was made from ingredients from St. Mary’s Field Community Garden, our apple juice was made from Kirrie apples gathered and pressed at our Apple Day in October, and the haggis was from Glen Gate Larder & Deli. Our leftover haggis, neeps & tatties went to Kirriemuir Food Hub. We love keeping it local!
