Kirknewton multi generational Burns Night success


On Friday 31st January the Kirknewton Youth Club and Senior Citizens had a joint Kirknewton Burns Night Supper mash up. Over 50 people were in attendance. There was an address to the haggis, music, a quiz, a meal & everyone on their feet linking arms and singing Auld Land Syne at the end. Thanks to Norma, Joan, Martin, Billy, Debbie, Ian, Maria, John, Steph and all the Youth Club members for their help.

This event came from a suggestion made after the successful Christmas event and was turned around in just three weeks.  It turned out to be a bigger event than originally planned and thanks to Gill and the Hall Committee we were able to try out the new Village Hall oven.  Based on recent feedback more investment is being made to the Hall and Green Room from the funds raised from your party and event bookings.

New KCDT staff member Maria Bathgate, whose role will be to work with Senior Citizens and volunteers over the next two years, who got up and addressed the haggis and also well done to Adam from the Youth Club who then got up and read the translated version.

Here’s some of the comments from the night.
