Burscough Burns Night Fun

A whole day of traditional fun and cheer was enjoyed at Stocks Hall, Burscough Home as together they celebrated the Scottish Poet, Robert Burns.

Burns Night commemorates the life of the bard (poet) Robert Burns, who was born on January 25th 1759. The day also celebrates Burns’ contribution to Scottish culture. His best-known work is Auld Lang Syne.

The Scottish flavour and theme filled the Home throughout the day as smiles, laughter and togetherness made this such a memorable occasion.

Arts and crafts, sing-alongs and highland flings in bonnie costumes were just some of customary cheer for those living at the Home to enjoy. A ‘wee dram’ of mulled wine and mince pies were served as an afternoon tea service, followed by recital of poems and music by Robert Burns.

Chef, Janette cooked a delicious supper of hearty Scottish food which included savoury mince with neeps and tatties, followed by Scots oaty crumble with custard and a side of Edinburgh buttery shortbread.

Activities Staff, Leanne says “There was an amazing atmosphere and jovial vibe at Stocks Hall’s Burns celebrations. Bringing everyone together is an amazing feeling, year upon year this event is proving to be very popular with people living at the Home and their families.”
