A traditional Burns Night at Oxfordshire care homeResidents enjoyed a traditional supper with a wee drop of whisky for Burns Night this year at HC-One’s Thamesfield care home in Henley-on-Thames.

The Chefs created a delicious menu including the traditional haggis, neeps and tatties, followed by cranachan and a dram of single malt whisky.

One Colleague at the home, Bill, is a true Scotsman and came dressed in his kilt, carrying the bagpipes he was gifted for Christmas.

One Resident commented: “The food was truly delicious and Bill looked amazing in his kilt.”

Although he didn’t play any tunes, he certainly looked the part and Bill has already been booked for St. Andrews Day in November where he will hopefully be able to play a tune or two.

Each Resident was given a copy of Address to the Haggis, as is tradition, and everyone raised a glass to Robert Burns himself.

The Burns Night festivities were the perfect way to brighten up a dreary January and Residents appreciated all the effort put in by Colleagues to make the evening special.

Thamesfield Home Manager, Lina Nela, said: “The whole dining room looked very traditional and we were all thrilled to have Bill in his traditional outfit. He looked very smart.”
