Burns Night : A wonderful evening
The club has shaken off the winter gloom with a splendid Burn’s Night on 28th January. The evening started with a song from Jane Osborne and Isobel Moloney.
It told the tale of some Beadnell sailors on the West Coast. It raised much laughter, was skilfully composed, beautifully sung and greatly appreciated.
James Graham hillariously addressed the haggis which had been proudly paraded by Charlie his son. Paul Simpson gave a very moving toast to the Lassie accompanied in unscripted asides by his wife Gillian which added to the fun, Hillary Wynne gave a rousing reply, extolling the virtues of men
and moved quickly on to entertain us with one or twenty of our foibles! She finished off with one verse from one of Burn’s 594 poems and induced a heartfelt moment of refection.
It was a fun evening and everyone was so involved in talking that we did not do any dancing before it was time to leave.
A big thank you to the Social Committee who did a marvellous job decorating the clubroom and preparing the food and to those members who helped tidy and wash up afterwards.
It was a wonderful evening.
