SOUTH YORKSHIRE Morning Star Readers and Supporters Group members gathered at workers’ stately home Wortley Hall outside Sheffield on Saturday tonight for their annual Burns supper.
The event featured the piping-in of the haggis followed by a traditional supper of haggis, neeps and tatties with music and poetry readings.
A raffle raised £305 for the Morning Star fighting fund.
Wortley Hall was the Victorian family seat of the Earls of Wharncliffe, and was built with profits drawn from the sweat and blood of miners of south Yorkshire.
In the 1950s the dilapidated stately home with its 14 acres of land was taken over by the labour and trade union movement and restored by volunteers.
It now serves as a centre for the movement’s activities such as conferences and festivals.
