GOUROCK Burns Club celebrated its 123th anniversary dinner at the Gamble Halls.

Eighty members and guests attended the event, with President Raymond Jack in the chair.

Norman Campbell gave the address to the haggis, which was followed by an excellent meal.

Iain Glennie, past president of Bridgeton Burns Club, proposed a toast to the Immortal Memory of Robert Burns.

The Toast to the Lassies was proposed by Reverend David Birt, of Old Gourock and Ashton Church.

Club secretary Jimmy Fisher said the toast to Burns was 'stimulating and instructive' while the toast to the lassies 'combined good humour and food for thought.'

Mr Fisher added: "Musical entertainment was provided by soloist Sean Nelis accompanied by David Mackie, who also joined with piper John Macleod in a much appreciated medley of pipe music."

Jimmy Law provided an entertaining mixture of recitation and monologue while Alasdair Hendry gave the vote of thanks of the company to guests and chairman.
