Borderland Rotary celebrated Burns Night by welcoming piper Andy Young as he first piped a welcome to the festivities and then paraded around the room followed by the steaming haggis which was borne by the chef.

Andy then recited the famous Rabie Burns poem, Address to a Haggis.

A spokesperson for Borderland Rotary said: “For those who haven’t seen this performed before, it’s very dramatic and as he says, “And then, O what a glorious sight, Warm-reekin, rich!” the knife slices into the haggis and the contents spills out. The performance ends with a toast to the haggis and all down a wee ‘dram.”

President of Borderland, Cathy Osselton said, “I’d forgotten how loud bagpipes are when played indoors but it made for a great evening. It’s now time to get back to work on the club projects after the disruption of the last two years.”
