Margaret Manfield, Hon Secretary writes:

Due to the governments guidelines ‘for people meeting with others outside of their household’  it really will not be possible for the club to have a social gathering this autumn. We can of course still meet up in small groups of six out in the open air. I know many of you do this anyway and will continue to do so throughout the winter as much as the weather allows.

From September 10th , when our dancing term would normally be starting,  I will email you with one of the dances from our Christmas party programme to encourage you to look at the YouTube video and hopefully dance along with it. Please let me know if you have news you would like to share with club members so that we can keep in touch with each other.

This week’s dance is The Gentleman

To make you smile:

We had a meeting on 13th August for a picnic- have a look at the photos by Tom Stokes in the Photo Gallery

 Margaret Manfield organised a Quiz in July, which asked members to identify 8 dances by their unique feature which was the clue given. The winner was Ann Hammond , who has always had a phenomenal memory for “how does it start?”
