Music was played, Mr Burns' famous poetry was recited and everyone joined in to sing Auld Lang Syne.

People enjoyed a spread of traditional Haggis, neeps and tatties, Scotch eggs and more, which was laid on by the staff at the home.

Maria Seitan, manager of Meadow House, said: 'Everyone had an amazing time.
