LOVE WALK ENJOY BAGPIPES PERFORMANCE

13 February 2018

To celebrate Burns Night, residents at Love Walk were treated to the beautiful sound of bagpipes, performed by local bagpiper, Ian. “I really enjoyed it – the Scottish music was right up my street!” commented one of our residents.

“Ian is an inspiration for our residents”, commented Paul Clay, Activities Co-ordinator. “He was 29- years-old when he started learning to play the bagpipes. For eight years he travelled all over the world and took his bagpipes with him. Residents love to hear his stories.”

Following the bagpipes performance, resident Richard read the poem My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose by Robert Burns. Everybody enjoyed the afternoon and the opportunity to celebrate Burns Night together.
