Scotland’s national bard was honoured in traditional style on Friday when the Incorporation of Hammermen held their Burns Supper.

The evening was in the capable hands of Deacon Kevin Fairbairn and a commendable Immortal Memory was proposed by Alan Brydon which won suitable acclaim from the gathered company.

The toast to The Lassies was in the capable hands of Alistair Craig who displayed a considerable knowledge of the subject matter. Ex-Hammermen’s Standard Bearer Darren Munro responded in appropriate style and former Standard Bearer, Alan Wheelans gave the vote of thanks.

Meanwhile, right and below, an 18-strong group of Selkirk tradesmen and their guests journeyed to the Ardnamuchan peninsula for a Burns Supper with locals at Glenborrodale Castle. Arnold Henderson received a standing ovation for his Tam o’ Shanter.
