The Bard

Burns Suppers, celebrating our national Bard, can now be found around the world and during my recent trip to Malawi I was delighted to attend one.

Naturally there have been numerous such suppers throughout the constituency and on Friday I was delighted to be invited to the Hotts Hooley Burns Supper, which was run by Hottsbridge Primary School in conjunction with their Parent Council.  It was great to be able to celebrate the Bard in such convivial company. My contribution was a variation on the Toast to the Lassies, which included some of my own school day memories.
