Branch Day School 2018 report and photos

Our Day School on Saturday 20 October 2018 was a great success with about 115 dancers and 18 musicians in attendance.  Hopefully those who missed it this year will be able to make it next year.
Thanks go to all those who helped on the day with a particularly big thank you to Margaret Shaw her daughter Sarah, sister Anne and Lena Robinson who provided us with excellent refreshments and who didn’t stop all day. Thank you also to our MC Simon Wales for the evening dance and to Ian Robertson and the Day School musicians whose music was superb to dance to.

Here are just a few of the comments we received:
– ‘Thanks for a most enjoyable Day School today’
