The audience were entertained throughout the evening by talented Methlick pupils who performed doric and Burns poems.

Hilary Gordon, of Oldmeldrum Rotary Club, said that the P7 dancers along with David Fraser on the pipes were excellent.

She said: “Colin Galacher’s animated address whetted the appetite for the traditional haggis, mince neeps and tatties, followed by trifle.

“George Ross displayed a great deal of humour and knowledge of Burns in an immortal memory which was spiced with a large chunk of Tam O Shanter.

“Alison Hepburn took us on a tour of Scotland ably demonstrating a variety of accents from Orkney to Banff and Alford from a lassies point of view in response to a well constructed toast to the lassies from Paul Winterbottom.

The successful event was down to the hard work of the organisers and the committee.

Hilary added: “The committee are to be commended for providing an excellent evening of fellowship, entertainment and haute cuisine.

“Thanks to Colin Presly who compered the evening.”
