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: Irish Rover 8x32R

And for fun: Musical Stairs

In the summer we met  for a picnic- have a look at the photos by Tom Stokes in the Photo Gallery

BBC Sounds App has lots of radio programmes and podcasts  to enjoy including the Saturday evening “Take the Floor” from Scotland with live bands and recorded music which will get your feet tapping.
