Club marks 225th anniversary of Rabbie Burns' death
Wednesday, July 21 marked 225 years since Scottish Bard Rabbie Burns’ death.
So, members of the Galashiels Burns Club braved the heat to hold a small ceremony at the great man’s bust opposite the town's library.
Founded in 1908, the club hosts a Burns Supper every January, revelling in performances of the poet’s work and celebrating his life.
Club president Bruce Robertson laid a bouquet of flowers at 11am.
