Burns Night Capers at Tewkesbury Fields

Tewkesbury Fields Care home in Tewkesbury organised a traditional Burns Night Supper with Scottish bagpipes and Scottish fun this week!

Staff and residents at the home were involved in a number of activities to mark the Scottish celebrations, with highlights including a Bagpiper, a Robert Burns Poetry reading by Nancy and giving the time-honoured address to the ‘Great chieftain O’ the pudding’ race’ – the Haggis.

General Manager, James Culley at Tewkesbury Fields Care home, thought it was a perfect occasion to celebrate a day steeped in age-old tradition as well as getting a Scottish Bag Piper to pipe in the residents to the restaurant, a spot of Scotch whisky tasting and the celebrated haggis – we even had a vegetarian version for the vegetarians – and those who didn’t fancy Haggis!!

James said, “Our residents have enjoyed a hearty meal of Haggis with neaps and tatties all prepared by our in house MasterChef! We really love celebrating a variety of cultural and traditional events in our home and see our residents enjoy themselves. There is never a dull moment at Tewkesbury Fields, and every week there are a variety of fun events and activities both in and outside of our home that our residents enjoy and take part in”.
