A record number of members and guests turned out for the Burns Night supper at Crow Nest Park Golf Club, Brighouse.

Eighty revellers enjoyed a traditional Burns Night meal of Scots broth, haggis tatties and neeps, roast beef and a whisky-laced dessert. There was music and dancing to the Skallagrigg Band and Hugh Norwood piped the haggis into the room.

Club president John Haverstock, who happens to be Scottish, made a humorous address and gave a toast to the ‘lassies’. General manager Les Holmes said: “It was an excellent night, the best we have had to date, and it was fantastic to see everyone enjoying themselves.”

The club restaurant is planning a re-launch night after starting the New Year by taking the catering services back in-house.

Les said: “We are going to have new diners’ cards which I am just finalising and once these are sorted out we can arrange a night of fine dining and live music.”

The club is now taking bookings for the Valentine’s Day special which is £50 for a sharing platter for starters, a main course, selection of desserts, petits fours and coffee with a glass of bubbly on arrival.
