NEXT DANCE EVENT – OPEN AIR DANCING
We are sad to report the death in August of Wilson Nicol, a London Branch chairman from 1993-1996 and another of our Honorary Vice-presidents. Wilson was also editor of our magazine The Reel for several years.
Our first Open Air Dancing event takes place this Saturday 18 August near the bandstand in Kensington Gardens. Entrance is free. Bring a picnic and enjoy some ceilidh and easy Scottish dances. Our MC is James Fairbairn with live music from Kafoozalum.
We are sad to announce the death in July of Owen Meyer who was a former London Branch chairman from 2002-2005. Owen was also one of our Honorary Vice-presidents.
