Peterhead branch SNP and Cruden Bay, Hatton & Longhaven branch SNP held their annual joint Burns Supper in Longhaven Hall recently.

The event, which attracted more than 70 guests, heard speeches from local MP and Westminster candidate Eilidh Whiteford and recently-elected SNP Depute Leader Stewart Hosie, MP for Dundee East.

SNP Council Group Leader and former Director of Education for Aberdeenshire Hamish Vernal gave the Address to the Haggis in fine style.

A highly entertaining rendition of Tam O’Shanter was provided by Gordon Mackay, who also provided the evening’s musical entertainment with his son, Ewan.

Commenting on the evening, MP Eilidh Whiteford said: “We were delighted Stewart Hosie was able to accept our invitation to speak at this year’s Burns Supper. The turnout was excellent and was a great celebration of the life and work of our national bard, Rabbie Burns.

“A huge thank you to everyone involved in the organisation of the night and especially to our guest speakers from far and near and our fantastic musicians,” she added.
