Great Chieftain O' the Puddin-Race!

Fair fa' your honest, sonsie face, Great chieftain o' the puddin-race!
On Saturday 28 January 90 parishioners of St John the Evangelist in Horsham celebrated Burns Night with the traditional meal of haggis, neaps and tatties followed by cranachan while we were entertained by poems and songs.

Pictured is parish priest Fr Richard Biggerstaff leading the party piping in the haggis followed by piper Robin Landells and Bill Wickham who recited the 'Address to the Haggis'. After costs were covered a donation of £400 has been given to assist a parish family to take their daughter to Lourdes this year.
