National Museum of Country Life Event
On Sunday Jan 25th the Robert Burns Federation had a table top stall display with a cut out of Robert Burns on one side and on the other the Grampian Oats Pop up.
A simple quiz was devised and handed out to children - over fifty entries were received and great fun generated throughout the day. The winner of the Teddy Bear was selected and notified by e mail. It turned out that there were two sister involved so two bears were sent.
All entrants and parents got a packet of Oats and that was greatly appreciated.
East Kilbride Burns Event
On Wednesday 28th - I attended the annual Burns event held by a group in East Kilbride who have an ongoing series of talks throughout the year.
Task today was to give a talk on Robert Burns and specifically mention the Haggis and the Tam O Shanter poem. A quiz was handed out and caused much hilarity. Great delight expressed in receiving a sample packet of Oats for entering.
