We are organising our Burns supper and are going all out as it has been such a dreary winter.  We have highland dancers coming in, a piper and 2 men from the local Masonic Lodge to come in and address the haggis and toast the lassies.  One of our own clients have also volunteered to say the Selkirk grace.  Looking forward to it already.

Perth Concert Hall-Carer’s go Free

Bus Trips, Days Out, Perth, Scotland / No Comments

Any outing to Perth concert hall in the main Theatre also comes highly recommended and staff are excellent, the disabled seating and access is the best in Scotland and the seats are the best in the house.  Better still the carer gets to go free with those who require a wheelchair escort. With no booking fee and friendly staff it is well worth a visit http://www.horsecross.co.uk
