Rabbie recited the Selkirk Grace as Fouters head chef George Ramage and his team served up a resplendent menu of traditional Scottish fare.

After lunch Rabbie led a discussion about how local businesses could make better use of the Burns name and tradition in marketing brand Ayrshire, with Homecoming Scotland - www.homecomingscotland.com - just around the corner in 2009 particularly in mind.
