RSCDS Youth Week
On Wednesday 25th January we are inviting as many young people as possible to attend our RSCDS Youth Week event. Young is under 40 these days!! If you have such dancers in your club or if your members have children of that age who have done it before or would like to give Scottish dancing a go, please tell them about the event. Experience in SCD is not needed and we shall adapt the programme to suit.
The evening is not exclusively for “young people” and our regular Wednesday dancers will be there too. Everyone is welcome. Please encourage anyone interested to come along to share the fun and the haggis. To make sure we don’t run out of haggis, please ask people to let Paul know if they are coming. His email address is Paul Plummer The event will be held at St Mary’s Church Hall, Park Road, Camberley GU15 2SR and it will start at 8pm.
Do please pass this on to your members before Christmas, and encourage people to come.
