A Burns Night to Remember

Residents at the Hawthorns Clevedon embraced the spirit of the Scottish Highlands for their Burns Night celebrations on Thursday 25th January. Honouring one of Scotland’s most iconic poets, Robert Burns. His most well-known poems include, ‘To a Mouse’, ‘Address to a Haggis’, and the traditional New Year’s anthem, ‘Auld Lang Syne’, which is still sung across the world today. 

Everyone immersed themselves in the traditions of Burns Night, donning their best tartan and enjoying Scottish cuisine such as haggis, neeps and tatties, all washed down with a refreshing glass of Scotch whisky. Afterwards, everyone enjoyed a performance from a Scottish bagpiper. Resident Peter said, “Thank you very much to all staff involved. It was by far the best Burns Night I have ever experienced in my life! Great food, well done service and lovely atmosphere overall!”

Speaking of the event, Customer Services Manager Aggie Jasinski stated, “Huge thanks to all residents and visitors for making the evening memorable, and well done to our talented chefs for their outstanding work. Thank you to all staff involved.”
