Elisabeth Srotkova, from the Czech Republic, and Tibor Rozsa, from the Slovakia, were given the honours after club organisers were impressed with their skills.

Member Peter Flynn said he met the pair and introduced to the club.

He said: “These two students have taken to Scottish Dancing like ducks to water and are among the best of the society’s dancers.

“They were delighted with the Burns Supper and enjoyed the haggis and the neeps and tates supper.”

The toast was given by Ann Lindsey.

The Caledonian Society held their Burns Night supper on Friday night at the County Club.

The piper was Allan Prebble and President Stewart Walker carried the haggis.
