Local SNP Burns Night Success

Cruden Bay, Hatton & Longhaven and Peterhead SNP branches held their 2016 Burns Supper in the Public Hall, Longhaven on Saturday.
The Burns Supper, which attracted around 70 guests, heard speeches from locals and visitors, including an Immortal Memory by Ross, Skye & Lochaber MP Ian Blackford, a Toast to Scotland by East Aberdeenshire SNP candidate Gillian Martin, with some recitations from Peterhead Burns enthusiast Kevin Lamb, and the Address to the Haggis being made by local MP Eilidh Whiteford.

Musical entertainment was provided by John and Liz Slaven of ‘Ficherin Aboot’.

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson, who compered the evening, said:

“This year’s Burns Supper featured fantastic contributions from some very high calibre speakers and some amazing local musical talent, who I would commend to anyone for a good night’s entertainment.

“The turnout was excellent and was a great celebration of the life and work of our national bard, Rabbie Burns. A huge thank you to everyone involved in the organisation of the night and especially to our guest speakers from far and near and those fantastic musicians.”

Local MP Dr Eilidh Whiteford said:

"I was delighted that we had such a great turnout at this year’s event. It was tremendous night. The speakers and entertainers were top notch. All round it was a great way to celebrate our national bard.

“Thanks must go to everyone that took part in and helped organise a very enjoyable event."
