Inaugural NSA Scotland Burns Night Supper

On Friday 17th January 2020 at the Westlands Hotel in Dunblane NSA Scotland held their inaugural Burns Night Supper. This was a highly anticipated event due to the high calibre of the speakers acquired by Alec Telfer.

A special thanks must go out to all the speakers, Bryony MacGregor for her entertainment, the Westlands Hotel for a lovely meal and to Euan Emslie and the committee who organised the event. It was a fantastic evening had by all with a vast array of topics conversed. On the night 63 members and guest attended. They raised £680 through a prize raffle with the proceeds contributing towards the costs of the Scottish team competing at the European Young Shepherd competitions being held in Paris at the end of February.
