I enjoyed it so much I intend to have another this year!

Thank you to all the organisers, helpers and to all the callers for their hard work. It is much appreciated.
Thank you. Your support is much appreciated.

One minor point, the gap between the afternoon and the evening seems to be very long. If run again, would it be possible to start the evening at 7.30 to shorten this slightly? Thanks again.
We had several comments about this and the time has been changed to 7.30pm start generally for next year.

Thanks Di for calling what we were dancing. Pauline Thank you, I try my best

Terry – Happy Birthday. Thanks for organising event. Sue & Clive, Sue & Eddie, Jane
Perfect way to spend a birthday, thank you.

Required: - Tongs to squeeze teabags? (Please!)

(Thurs) Bought a set. (Thaaank you!)

Keep them flags flying till next year. BOOK YOUR PLACE NOW!

Thank you for promoting the event.

Try after party on Wednesday to break up the week. (I find by Wednesday I get very tired.) Star if you agree = xxxxxxx

Comment noted, however after party is to be held on Thurs evening when all calling staff are present. Can’t please everyone all the time!

No – don’t agree. Jane

Food Angel

After being established for 13 years and providing food for the Festival, this is our very last “gig”.

Thanks to everyone who has complimented our food, and many who have become our friends.

Naziha is committed to her career in mental health, Rex is co-ordinating the fight against FGM in Europe (and Cuba!)

So to you all from Nice to Berlin, from Sydney to Southport, thanks. Your money has gone to educating girls in Africa, and finding fresh water in that arid continent, so a BIG THANK YOU!!


Love, Naziha & Rex

Thank you. Zig Zag it shall be! Or will it be Zag Zig or maybe Zag Zag or Zig Zig?

Congrats to all concerned for organising a wonderful week of dancing. We’ve had excellent Rounds teaching sessions and fun evening dances – in future years could we perhaps have a few dances practising what we’ve learnt during teaching to show others what we’ve done? R&S
