Burns Night Supper for Rogers House Residents
The residents of Rogers House Residential Care Home marked the life and poetry of Robert Burns and celebrated all things Scottish on 25th January.
Residents of the Drewery Drive care home in Wigmore raised a glass to the Scotsman and celebrated his life and work on Monday, with a day jam packed with themed activities.
In addition to traditional music featuring bagpipes and learning to dance the Highland fling, residents were treated to a reading from Scottish resident, Margo, who impressed with her Scottish lingo as she dictated a Burns’ poem, Address to a Haggis.
After an afternoon full of fun, the residents had worked up quite an appetite, so thankfully the kitchen team were on hand to provide a traditional Burns Night supper. The hungry residents tucked into a classic dish of haggis, neeps and tatties, all washed down with a glass of whisky, of course – perfect for a frosty January evening.
Jackie Miles, Home Manager of Rogers House said: “We always enjoy celebrating special events and occasions here at Rogers House, as it keeps our activities varied and interesting.
“The residents had great fun embracing the array of activities throughout the day and were particularly impressed with Margo’s recital and her excellent Scottish jargon skills!”
