Residents of Bridge View House were delighted to be joined by Lord Provost Bob Duncan and Assistant Council Officer Mr Bob Rowlands at their Burns Supper held on 25th January. Piper Ross Inglis piped in the haggis and welcomed the officials as they arrived.

It was Lord Provost Duncan’s first visit to the home and he said “I am delighted to be here at Bridge View House to meet with the residents and to celebrate Burns Night with them. I felt it important to meet with the residents many of whom have been friends and have given so much to their local area. We need to ensure that residents continue to feel part of the community in Dundee and the staff at Bridge View House ensure that this happens. The home is looking wonderful after its recent refurbishment works and I was delighted to accept their invitation.”

We received this lovely card:

I’d like to thank you and your staff for hosting the Burns Supper on Wednesday. As a guest, I was impressed with the effort that was put into the entire day. The interaction of the staff and residents was lovely to see. The food was beautifully cooked and presented. One guest enjoyed the Cock-a-Leekie soup so much, she requested the recipe. A tribute indeed.To end the day, I was delighted to win the lovely hamper in the raffle.

To see my Mum so relaxed and happy was wonderful. I thank everyone.
