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.
