Steeple Steppers August Bank Holiday Weekend - Cancelled
Due to a lack of support Steeple Steppers have cancelled their Bank Holiday Camp Out in August 

Simon and Trudy Fielding are calling at this no cost event to celebrate the life of Tricia on the 13th August 2016. (Flyer) 

News from Lone Star SDC

I have to announce that after 38 years, Lone Star SDC will close on 21st July 2016.

Dancers were encouraged to join Stourbridge SDC, and, 95% will do so.
Club Caller Brian Summerfield wishes to semi retire, he will join Stourbridge calling staff and will be calling twice a month.
Due to the popularity of Llandudno & Southport weekends, they will carry on as usual, as will dances already booked with Neil in October 2016 & James in March 2017.

Best wishes and thanks to Callers & Dancers for your support over the years.
