Residents enjoyed celebrating Burns' Night at Corton House with a whole week of Scottish themed activities, including a virtual tour of Scotland, beef stovie and Scottish salmon on the menu.

Particularly pleased was our Aberdeen-born resident Mary, who we supported to celebrate her Scottish heritage. She wore her favourite tartan dress and fondly reminisced about childhood picnics in Inverness during our Scottish Sing-Along session. At lunch on Burns' Day, she also read the poet's famous "A Red Red Rose" poem to all the residents, some of whom joined in with her!
