haggis parade

Good food, good whisky and good friendship. Is there a better way to start the year?

Members and guests of Thurrock Yacht Club enjoyed a hugely successful Burns Night dinner on 26th of January.

The event is held annually when for one night our little corner of South Essex takes on a distinctly Caledonian air.

Our resident laird Dave McLean led the festivities, reciting Robbie Burns' immortal "Address to a Haggis" before the classic plate of haggis, neaps, and tatties was served up to the hungry diners.

After dinner, games ensued with over £300 being raised for our defibrillator fund.

Special thanks to Sue McLean, Becky Munday, and John Darby for their hard work on the night to make this such a successful and enjoyable occasion.
