The St Andrews Society of Denmark and the British Chamber of Commerce held a joint celebration on January 24 to mark Burns Night in Vanløse, and as you might expect, those in attendance obliged the occasion by wearing their kilts, wolfing down some haggis, neeps and tatties with a wee dram, and willingly listening to the bagpipes. The guest of honour was British ambassador Vivien Life, while presiding over matters was BCCD president Mariano Davies, who is pictured next to Philip Tees, the Glaswegian business editor of the Weekly Post  (left: on the right)
