Running for thirty years,the annual Highland Fling celebrates the birthday, 25th January, of the Scottish poet Robert Burns.In our wee Somerset Village Hall. When in 1985 the then Chair of the Hall, Major Michael Ryal, suggested the idea of a fundraiser, the "only Scot in the village", George Downey, volunteered. Led for many years by George with his wife Helen, the fine traditions continue under the fun and capable hands of Jill and Lee O'Connor, Vicky and Paul Devonshire and team. The proud culture of Scotland is on display as people enter the hall clad in tartan,kilts and sporrans, ghillie brogues and shawls (don't let that put you off, jeans are fine).The piping of the haggis, followed by address and toast, give a welcome rest as guests feast on the haggis, both meat and vegan versions, tatties and neeps. You will never look at your neighbours in the same way. This event draws crowds from near and a far. Contact Jill on 01823 481000, firstname.lastname@example.org, or 07968217132
