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