There was plenty of tartan flying around at the Monmouth Group of Parishes Ceilidh at Monmouth Priory on Saturday 23 January.
Sixty would-be dancers came together to enjoy an evening full of fun and laughter. From 2 to 80 year olds, all enjoyed the music of “Cannon Fodder”, the music group from Bristol. The talented caller showed us how to do the dances whether in a circle, square or two straight lines. All joined in, and as it was Burns night, we had to dance the gay Gordon. Beefburger baps and hot dogs were served all through the evening, and a raffle took place with plenty of winners.
We concluded the evening with a special grace played and sung by the band. All agreed that this was an evening to repeat. £300 was made for St Thomas’ Hall Redevelopment Fund.
Our next event will be a special St David’s day lunch on Sunday 28 February in St thomas’ Church Hall.
