Haggis, neeps and tatties at Ventress Hall

Home news

Residents and the team at Ventress Hall enjoyed their Burns afternoon on January 25, the first time the home had celebrated the day.

Musician Sarah Waldron visited the home to play the bagpipes and walked around the building as she played, so all residents could see her in action and hear the traditional Scottish music.

Sarah, then played performed in the main dining room and was joined by Ventress Hall’s chef, who carried the haggis along neeps and tatties, which had been cooked especially for the day.

Sarah Waggitt, Activities Co-Ordinator, followed carrying the all-important bottle of whisky, with which the haggis was toasted.

The haggis was blessed with the traditional poem of Robbie Burns before everyone tucked in to their traditional Burns day meal and a wee dram of whisky.
