Fyne Homes Tenant Participation took part in a number of Burns events during January including at The Nostalgia Café at The Lade Centre.
Tenants and friends enjoyed entertainment from Apple Tree Nursery pupils and from Rothesay Joint Campus primary and academy pupils.
The Apple Tree children sang a number of songs including ‘Three Craws’, ‘Ali Bali’ and the Burns’ classic ‘Red, Red Rose’. The primary school pupils sang and recited a number of works including the Burns’ favourites ‘Ae Fond Kiss’ and ‘The Wounded Hare’. The children also entertained the audience with ‘The Ballad of Janitor McKay’ and ‘A dug, a dug’.
Highland dancing and piping was provided by the academy pupils and they were joined by primary pupils to recite ‘To a Mouse’. The event was completed by ‘The Selkirk Grace’ before the ‘Address tae the Haggis’. Lunch was haggis pies and clootie dumpling.
Craig Baxter of Fyne Homes, said: “Fyne Homes Tenant Participation was delighted to once again work with local children from Apple Tree Nursery and Rothesay Joint Campus to bring a flavour of Burns to their annual Nostalgia Café Burns Lunch.
“The event was a great success with over 25 local tenants and their friends enjoying the entertainment. The talent displayed by the children was phenomenal and a big future awaits them on the island’s Burns scene.
“A big thank you to all the children involved, the staff for bringing them along, and to the volunteers.”
