26 April 2021 – Update on Branch activities due to current circumstances

Coronavirus Update – RSCDS London moving on from lockdown

As the vaccination programme progresses we are beginning to hope that plans to restart dancing during 2021 may actually come to fruition. Experience, however,  has taught us all to be cautious in planning live events and so, whilst we have included details of proposed programmes on the branch activity part of the website, please do keep checking back to learn of any changes to these plans.

After the success of the London Branch Burns Night from Home and the Combined Societies’ Spring from Home virtual events we have one more virtual activity before we hope to meet face to face.  The London Branch AGM and Ceilidh will take place via Zoom on Saturday 12 June 2021 at 5.00 p.m.  Covid permitting, the 90th Anniversary Garden Celebration will be held in the grounds of St Helens School, Northwood on 3 July to be followed by the New Season Dance at St Columba’s Church in Pont Street on 18 September. Meanwhile we will do our best to keep members and friends of the branch up to date with news via the eUpdate, Website and The Reel.
