Last evening , the annual Burns supper was held in Maxton Village Hall. A special welcome was given to Sheila Moir, the new Minister for the parish who kindly delivered the Selkirk Grace.

Following the Entry of the Haggis by Tom and the Address to the Haggis by Thomson, the gathered tucked into a traditional supper of soup, haggis, neeps and tatties.

After supper Tom delivered the Immortal memory, with Douglas giving the Toast to the Lassies and Priscilla the response.

A big thank you to everyone who contributed to the evening making it, as ever a very enjoyable event.
