Each year, we organise several social dances. These dances are a great way to meet lots of new people, and to put into practice what you have learnt during classes! Please contact our secretary if you need any more information.
Witham and District Caledonian Society is alive and dancing!
We enjoyed several meetings in gardens in the summer and we have returned to what we enjoy most: dancing and being sociable. Our Wednesday dance classes have been reasonably well attended although some members are still being very cautious.
We meet at the Centre in Witham United Reformed Church and Cathie Rowe helps us with expert tuition at the start of each month. Our delayed Annual General Meeting took place on the 22nd September and the current list of Office Bearers is given on the Committee page.
Our Autumn Tea Dance took place on Sunday the 14th November. Despite low numbers we had an enjoyable afternoon and we welcomed dancers from Essex and Suffolk.
Burns Night at Feering Community Centre on the 22nd of January 2022 was a great evening. Kenny Brown made the keynote speech and we enjoyed ourselves afterwards with poetry, dancing and song.
The Spring Tea Dance was held 13th March 2022 at Maldon and Heybridge Football Club. It was an enjoyable afternoon with good numbers attending. The proceeds of the raffle were added to the surplus from ticket sales and a significant sum was sent to the Ukraine appeal.
The Essex Ball will take place at Wickham Bishops Village Hall in the afternoon of Saturday 30th April. It has been organised by South East Essex Scottish Society and it will be run as a collaborative effort by the members of all of the societies in Essex.
Our Summer Dance is on 4 June 2022 in Marks Tey. As it falls on the weekend of Her Majesty the Queen’s Jubilee Celebration we have decided to call it The Jubilee Summer Dance. There is a poster giving the programme and a set of dance cribs that may be downloaded here. Tickets are available from Anne Jenkins and Audrey Kennedy. See the poster for details.
