Gathering of the Clans – 20th October, 7.45pm

On the night of the Gathering of the Clans, 8th September, and as our Council members and others were preparing the Hall for the ‘Gathering of the Clans’, the news of the death of The Queen filtered through. Several members, who were intending to come to the ceilidh, sent word that they felt it would be disrespectful to attend or that they just couldn’t join us.
The President promptly held a brief Council meeting where it was agreed to postpone the event. Those who did make the journey stayed a wee while for a cuppa …and moments of recollection, reflection and conversation. The new date for the Gathering of the Clans has now been decided by the Council and will be on Thursday, 20th October. This will replace the Autumn Dance originally planned for that date.

The Rose Dance & Ceilidh, May 2022

The Dance and Ceilidh on 26th May was well attended and a highly enjoyable and fun evening. A ‘bring and share’ buffet provided a lovely choice of food at the interval; leisurely eaten whilst celebrating the end of the season in conversation and laughter. Between the dancing, Norah and Marion entertained us with poems and Paul with an hilarious demonstration of idiosyncrasies in the English Language. It was a good night throughout.
