Residents at Goodwins Hall Care Home celebrated Burns Night with a special lunch at their Lynn base on Monday.

More than 75 residents and enjoyed a Scottish lunch and a piper, along with whisky-testing in the morning before they sat down for their meal.

Activities organiser Lynda Barber said: “We’ve had haggis on Burns Night and New Year’s Eve before, but never celebrated it properly before today.

“We thought it was a fun idea which all of the residents would like and all of them were involved.

“It went really, really well and we’ve already booked the piper again for next year.

“The residents really enjoyed themselves and especially the whisky testing.”

On the menu for residents were beef olives with oatmeal tucked in red wine gravy and Scottish lamb stew with rumbledethumps and neeps.

For dessert, there was the choice of clootie dumpling and custard or cranachan.
