Covid restrictions prevented us from hosting our usual Burns Night supper in the hall. Instead we decorated the village bus shelter in true tartan style.
Villagers were invited to hang their favourite Burns quotes or art on the tartan backdrop and children were encouraged to create a piece of art that represents a favourite Burns poem. We also put out a quiz to celebrate the life and work of Rabbie Burns. Anyone could pick up a copy and have a go. Here are the answers.
In light of the latest lockdown across Scotland, Tyninghame Village Hall Committee wanted to draw attention to East Lothian Council’s dedicated Covid-19 helpline on 01875 824300 for all those looking for advice or support. The email address firstname.lastname@example.org can also be used if looking for extra support for those self-isolating or shielding.
Please see the Scottish Government publication for the most up to date advice – please click here for advice from 13th January 2021.
Many thanks to those who took part in the Christmas wreath-making workshops in December, both in the Hall and at home. There have been some very beautiful wreaths adorning the doors of Tyninghame village (and beyond!). The winner of the wreath-making workshop was Sabina Struthers, her wreath can be seen in the bottom left of the collage.
To celebrate the festive season in 2020, the Tyninghame community will be displaying the Twelve Days of Christmas in windows throughout the village! This will begin on the 12th December. In addition the bus stop has been given a festive overhaul and there is the opportunity to leave notes for fellow villagers or even messages for Father Christmas himself.
