This is our latest page, to try and keep us all in touch and feel a bit better about being apart for so long.

If you have any tips, advice, or just anything to share, send an email or phone  Margaret Manfield or Jean Hill and we will add it to this page.

Margaret Manfield has introduced a new dance of the week:

Butterscotch and Honey

Keep dancing…! 

The RSCDS are keeping us all updated by their Dance Scottish at Home newsletter .

Also, an RSCDS Flash mob demonstration in Aberdeen is great fun- maybe one day we could try in Yeovil or Sherborne?  

If you have run out of something to read by now, the Library Service has a collection of electronic resources- eBooks, audio books, magazines and newspapers- just log on with your membership number. If you need help with remembering these, they have a phone number or email to try.
