A BURNS supper was in full swing at Gourock Golf Club in front of a full house.

Members held their 54th annual event on Saturday January 28 and it was a complete sell-out with chairman for the night, club captain Bill Hawthorne, welcoming 105 guests.

Guest speakers included Isabel Lind OBE, who started with a thought provoking and informative ‘immortal memory’ followed by Jock Service keeping everybody entertained with a very humorous ‘the lasses’.

Sports broadcaster and member of the very exclusive Robert Burns Guild of Speakers, Alison Walker, provided the ‘reply to the lasses’.

Songs from Lucy McCue and recitations from John McLeman added to the packed programme for the evening, which also featured Allan Easton’s expert piping.

A traditional meal was served up by club chef Adrian Magnano and all lady guests were presented with a red rose with the gentleman enjoying a ‘wee nip’. Ex-captain David Burnie closed the night with a vote of thanks.
