From Douglas Samways, president, Stonehaven (Fatherland) Burns Club
After careful consideration of all the information available at present, such as the greater transmissibility of the variant, its “super spreader” capabilities and uncertainties about how virulent it might be, the committee of the Stonehaven (Fatherland) Burns Club has reluctantly and with great regret decided to cancel its annual Burns Supper scheduled for Wednesday 26th January.
This is the second year running the SFBC’s annual Burns Supper has had to be cancelled but the committee is sure people will understand that this decision was not taken lightly. It was felt that the potential risk to the health and wellbeing of its members and supporters outweighed the desire to hold the usual well attended, informative, entertaining and enjoyable celebration of the life and works of Scotland’s national Bard.
The SFBC committee will do everything it can to ensure that a Burns Supper is held on Wednesday 25th January 2023.
