THERE were haggises galore when the Water Works Action Group hosted its first ever Burns Night.

However, the 60 people who braved the cold to gather round a campfire discovered some were more edible than others.

Children took part in a haggis hunt where they searched for a number of the elusive creatures which had been specially knitted by volunteers from Barrhead.

Then it was time to enjoy the tastier kind in a meal prepared by The Real Junk Food Project team using surplus food that would have otherwise ended up in the bin.

A spokesman for the Water Works Wildflower Community Garden said: “The pay as you feel meal was a great success.

“We’d like to thank everyone who helped out and made it such a special event.

“For anyone wanting to hold their own event at the Water Works, they can visit our website for full details.”
