On Sunday afternoon March 29th at Akeley Village Hall, Square Dancers from Herts, Notts, Northampton, Oxon and Bucks joined dancers from Buckingham’s U3A to wish Simon Kelly a Happy 70th Birthday. Everyone brought dainty finger-food for the afternoon’s delectation and the Charity pot was filled with £250 donations. This will, as usual, be matched by Santander, Simon’s ex-employer, to make a healthy total of £500. This dance is held Annually and over the years several thousand pounds has been donated to the Hospice by Square Dancers.
Next year there will, all being well, a world famous (in square dance terms) caller visiting us from Australia. He is known for his easy, funny and interesting style so we urge our Square dance friends to put this date in their diaries. April 24th 2016 – tickets on sale soon (sorry, yes we have to pay him! but any profit and proceeds from the raffle will go to the charity)
