The Branch Burns Supper Ceilidh on 16 January 2018 was once again a great success. 170 dancers enjoyed dancing to the superb music of the Caledonian Reelers as well as enjoying the delicious traditional supper of haggis, neaps and tatties provided by Margaret Shaw and her hard-working team. Iain Farrell piped in the haggis which was paraded by Willie Lawrence, and Ian Rutherford addressed it with great style.
