STEEPLE STEPPERS NEW YEAR WEEKEND
held at The Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick Derbyshire, DE55 1AU
with a few introductory notes from Angie Iliffe

I travelled to the Hayes Conference Centre in Swanwick for another celebration of the New Year.  Barry Gardiner agreed to call, (in spite of being ill),  as the original callers could not make it, so with mike in one hand and a bottle of cough medicine in the other, we had a great few days dancing.  We had a fancy dress competition, and various quizzes during the event and a lot of fun was had by all.  Some went walking in the pouring rain while others stayed behind staying dry!!!   We had some "Old Time" dancing before we saw in the New year with the usual "Old Acquaintance".  This was followed by a bit of a show by various members of the audience, great fun, finally getting to bed around 3am.  We had guest callers on New year's morning before  having lunch and heading home.  

We had 3 meals a day which were very good and certainly very filling, and the staff there were friendly and very helpful.

My thanks to all the folks from Stepple Steppers who organised the "Frolic" and the team who gave their time arranging all the events and making it a really enjoyable time for everyone.  I am already looking forward to next year.
