2020 is one that we won't forget - that's for sure.
As 2020 comes to a close, many of us can't wait for 2021 and the promise of hope that a New Year will bring.
We've missed celebrating with you this year but hopefully we will see you soon.
On behalf of the Society and our Committee, we'd like to wish you the very best for Christmas and hope you have a very, very, Happy Hogmanay!

A Hogmanay tradition - Stovies!
Wherever you end up this Hogmanay here's a simple version of a Scottish favourite that'll help soak up the many wee drams we all need!
2 Onions roughly chopped
½ turnip (swede) roughly diced
2 medium potatoes roughly diced
1-2 carrots sliced
400ml of beef stock
Leftover roast beef, lamb or mutton, 300g-500g, roughly chopped
2 tsp oil, or dripping, for fryingThis is a text block.
In a heavy-based pot heat the oil or dripping then add the onions. Sweat down a little, allowing no more than a little colour to form
Add the remaining vegetables and stock and bring gently to the boil. Turn down to a simmer
Continue to simmer until potatoes and turnip are cooked and carrot and onion have softened
Add the meat, stir, and heat gently for a couple of minutes to warm the meat through
Serve in bowls, ideally with warm bread and a dram of whisky
