Burns Supper 2021

Dear Members, Friends and Sponsors of the Society,

May I begin by wishing you and your loved ones a very Happy New Year and that our journey over the next 12 months will be a healthy and happy one.

I would also like to share with you that we have opted not to hold a Burns Night celebration in 2021 and while this is disappointing, with current and understandable restrictions on gatherings in Jakarta, we felt it better to be cautious in light of the ongoing pandemic regulations.

For those of you interested in celebrating the birthday of the bard at home, or simply learning more about what typically goes on during a Burns Night I have shared some links below which focus on poetry, food, music and of course whisky, all key ingredients for a celebration!

Looking ahead we will be launching our updated website in February, while the first of the year’s St Andrew’s versus St George’s golf matches is set to ‘tee off’ on 17th April 2021.

Thank you and kind regards

Andrew Abram
Chieftain Java St Andrew Society
