A Celebration of Burns was held in The Carrick Centre, Maybole on Friday 7th February.   This was organised by the local fundraising committee, with the expert help of Andrea Hutchison who supervises events in the Centre, and was a joint venture of Maybole Parish Church and the Centre. Elizabeth McCrindle, on behalf of the committee, welcomed the company. The haggis was piped in by Andrew Fulton and addressed with gusto by Jim Stevens.

After the Selkirk Grace by Alan McFarlane, the packed hall enjoyed a traditional meal prepared by Robert Barr and staff and served by Centre volunteers. Alan Murray compered the next part of the evening and this included a talk by Alan himself entitled “A wee bit about Burns”.

This was followed by entertainment with a difference from Jim Stevens, the accomplished accordion playing of Murray Patrick, the nimble-footed dancing of Rebecca and Monica and rousing piping from Andrew. There was a highly successful raffle and the bar was provided by Optex. In a comprehensive vote of thanks, Alan Hutchison thanked all those who had contributed to such an enjoyable evening.
