Burns Night 2023


Fog and ice on Saturday 21st January did not prevent a large number of Society members and friends, some from long distances, gathering at the Parsonage Hotel in Escrick to celebrate the birthday of our National Bard, Robert Burns.

Congratulations to York member Murray Halliday on becoming President of RBWF Yorkshire District and we wish him well in this role.
