More than one of our older (or should I say, more 'long term') members commented afterwards on how lovely it was to see him and how memories flooded back with his speech and other items of memorabilia we had scattered around.
It was really great to have so many members and their guests attending, as always the food contributed was an amazing selection which couldn't have been better if we'd organised it and everyone - whether they joined in or not - seemed to thoroughly enjoy the dancing - the fact that the dances were not the 'normal' selection of Gay Gordon's and Strip the Willow was enthusiastically applauded by more than one of the dancers who confessed that they never normally enjoyed a 'ceilidh'!
Pictures from the night can be found HERE or via 'Past Events' on the links above. If anyone wants to contribute some please send them over to me (P.S. I know who doesn't normally like their pictures taken so I've made sure they aren't on the shots - or at least not recognisably - but if anyone else doesn't want to be on them let me know, I will happily take them down from the site) see you tomorrow I hope Jx
