Pandemic fails to halt the spirit of Burns Night in Solihull care home

Solihull Editorial 28th Jan, 2021   0

BAGPIPE music and the smell of haggis filled the air when veterans celebrated Burns Night.

Residents at The Royal Star and Garter care home in Solihull tucked into a traditional Burns Supper – including haggis, neeps, tatties and a dram or two of whisky – at each of the charity’s three homes.

Despite the absence of visitors to the Monkspath Hall Road home this year because of the pandemic, residents enjoyed the traditional sounds of the bagpipes played through speakers.

Staff at the home, which cares for veterans and their partners living with disability or dementia, donned kilts and re-enacted playing the pipes.
