Congratulations to the Globe Inn

That the Parliament congratulates Jane Brown, the manager of the Globe Inn in Dumfries, on becoming president of the Robert Burns World Federation; acknowledges her enthusiasm and work in promoting the works of the National Bard throughout Scotland and across the world; understands that she is an honorary member of the Burns Howff Club, president of the Southern Scottish Counties Burns Association and a past president of the Dumfries Ladies Burns Club No 1;

notes that, in 1796, Burns wrote “The Globe Tavern here, which these many years has been my Howff”; understands that the Robert Burns World Federation is the oldest national literacy association in Scotland; notes that Jane will hold the position for 12 months and will be expected to travel widely as part of her role, and wishes her well on her travels throughout her term in office.
