Burns Night in Ross was celebrated in style by the Ross Refugee Group who meet each Wednesday evening at the Ross Baptist Church. As part of the aim to share our traditions with our visitors, a traditional Burns Night was organised. The evening started with an explanation of what this celebration was all about, this then continued with a rendition of ‘Flower of Scotland’. Everyone enjoyed some Scottish dancing, haggis, tatties and neeps (accompanied by Burns famous poem) and a small shot of whiskey. The evening was topped off by singing ‘Auld Lang Syne’. Special thanks to all the volunteers who help make these weekly meetings possible. If you would like to know more about this group, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Наш різдвяний вечір сподобався всім. Гра в дурні ігри призвела до багато веселощів і сміху, і нас відвідали мер і Дід Мороз.
Our Christmas party was enjoyed by all. Playing silly games led to lots of fun and laughter, and we had a visit from the mayor and Father Christmas.
Ми хочемо побажати всім нашим українським гостям, нашим господарям і чудовим помічникам-волонтерам спокійно провести час у святковий період і з нетерпінням чекаємо зустрічі з вами в новому році.
We would like to wish all our Ukrainian guests, our hosts and wonderful volunteer helpers a peaceful time over the festive period, and look forward to seeing you all in the new year.
The Ross Refugee Support Group would like to thank Ross Town Council for the recent grant of £750.
The funds will help the ongoing work of the group in supporting the twenty plus families which are now hosting over 80 Ukrainian guests in our community.
Congratulations to our guests who achieved their food hygiene certificates this week. The group is preparing for a project to share Ukrainian culinary delights in the town. Watch this space!
