A highly enjoyable afternoon was spent at Kinlochleven Primary School last week when youngsters invited residents from the nearby Abbeyfield Ballachulish Society nursing home to join them for a traditional Burns lunch event.

Abbeyfield Ballachulish Society officer manager Dominic Duffy said the youngsters made the Friday event truly memorable.

‘There were people from our lunch club and day care, as well as residents of the home, all at the school and the children put on a fantastic show for us,’ Mr Duffy told the Lochaber Times this week.

‘As well as an amazing lunch, there were poems recited and singing and everyone really had a great time.

‘It’s really good for the society to be involved with the community with things like this – whether that be our clients visiting the school, as in this instance, or kids coming to us for something.

‘It was great to see everyone having such a nice time at the Burns lunch. There’s always something infectious about youngsters and their enthusiasm for life that rubs off on you, which is fantastic.’

And as well as the traditional Burns fare of haggis, neeps and tatties – with a wee dram for the older lunch-goers – some of the Syrian families in Kinlochleven also brought along some mouth-watering extra treats and traditional Syrian dishes to try.
