Children from a Caister-based childminding service were treated to an authentic Highland experience as they celebrated Burns Night.

Youngsters from Sara and Jenny's Childminding Services visited Ealing House Residential Care Home in Martham and were delighted to meet a bagpiper named Ian.

Dressed in their best Scottish attire, the children watched in awe as the piper played for them as part of the Burns Night celebrations.

Everybody then dug into the obligatory haggis, neaps and tatties as Ealing House manager Vince Ewing read one of Robert Burns's well known poems.

The main was then followed with a traditional Scottish dessert called cranachan.

Sara Brannan, from Sara and Jenny's, said: 'The children were delighted to meet a 'real' bagpiper. He even had time for some photos and questions about his bagpipes.

'He started learning to play them when he was 12 and says he learns something new each time he plays.'
