Cancellation of AGM and Burns Supper
As the Covid 19 restrictions are still in place club activities are still suspended. It has been decided that The Burns Supper for January 2021 will regrettably not go ahead and the AGM which should have been held in May 2020 will now be held next May
2021. All office bearers and committee members will continue in their posts until then. Sad but necessary I'm afraid.
March 2020 Coronavirus
We have been watching the Coronavirus pandemic unfold, expecting that the day would come when we would have to suspend Burns Club activities for the health and safety of our members.
The next activity for the Club was to have been participation in the Feein' Market in June. This has now been cancelled
Meetings will hopefully resume in September - we will reschedule the AGM for September 2020.
During these hard times look after yourselves and if any of you find you need any support during the coming weeks or months don’t hesitate to contact the club via the email address.
Stay safe & well!
Stonehaven (Fatherland) Burns Club Committee
10th February 2020 Jim McAllan
We were very sorry to hear that long standing member of the Stonehaven Burns Club Jim McAllan has passed away today aged 93. Jim was a member of the Club for over 50 years and was still an active member of the committee up until his death. He is notably famed for Haudin' the haggis at the clubs Burns Suppers on no less than 43 occasions.A quiet couthy farmin' man nothing was too much trouble for him and he will be sorely missed. Jim was given a special presentation on the occasion of his 40th Haudin and the tribute to him can be seen on the site of the Club Suppers in 2016. See here. God bless Jim.
It has been deicided by the committee that in light of the ongoing COVID situation and the lack of any Club activity there will be no need to pay a subscription for the current year.
The AGM for 2021 has been booked for the Belvedere Hotel on Thursday 6th May. (Assuming this is allowable by this time!)
