Celebrating Scottish Poet Robert Burns

Epsom hosted the annual Burns Night Supper on Saturday, celebrating the life and works of the Scottish poet over a beautifully-prepared traditional feast of tatties and neeps.

Mrs Maria Stoney delivered the rights of the woman, Canon Paul gave a spirited Selkirk Grace, and Robert Wells spoke in honour of Robbie Burns.

Mr Wells said: “The address explored what Burns may think about the world were he alive today, and his love of a wee dram of whisky. It concluded with advice on how Burns would want us to live our lives today: In a time of great change and uncertainty in the world, no matter who you are, be you leave or remain, man or woman, rich or poor; honesty and goodwill should be the most important makings of a person.”
