Annual Ball cancelled
It is with great reluctance and regret that the committee has come to the conclusion we must cancel our Ball on 21 May. In spite of continued efforts by people to sell tickets we have been unable to sell a sufficient number to sustain the costs we will incur and we had to make a decision by this weekend to minimise cancellation costs.
Thankyou to everyone who has already purchased a ticket, you will be fully reimbursed. It is a disappointment not to be able to hold our ball again this year.

The committee has drawn these up to allow us all to feel as confident and comfortable as we can to allow us to dance normally, ie normal sized sets, no masks and hands taken as dictated by the dance.
Scottish Country Dancing is a form of social dance enjoyed worldwide. The dances are danced in groups called sets, normally of three or four couples. It is fun and an exercise for both the mind and body. See Starting Scottish Country Dancing if you would like to know more and how to start.
