Bolton Scottish Dance Club celebrates 50th anniversary
9:51am Monday 4th November 2013 in News
BOLTON Scottish Dance Club celebrated its milestone 50th anniversary with style — with a evening of reels, jigs and strathspeys.
Some of the members have been dancing for more than 40 years — and two original members, Jean Richardson and Ann Roscoe still attend the club’s weekly Monday evening meetings.
Fifty people turned up to the evening dressed in traditional Scottish attire ready to dance the night away at Stepping Stones Nursery in Chorley Old Road.
The club was formed in 1963 to promote Scottish country dancing in Bolton and provides a venue where dancers could meet regularly to practice and socialise.
Club treasurer Ian McNab said: “The dance went very well — we had a full hall, a good supper and were suitably tired by the end after some lively dances. Some dances reflected the occasion, such as Anniversary Reel, Golden Anniversary Strathspey, plus we had some old favourites like the White Heather Jig and the Duke of Perth, both guaranteed to leave even the younger ones breathless.”
