PROGRAMME

Tonight's 10 dances are hidden in the narrative below, all you have to do is find them!

Tonight's social is our final Monday meeting before we take our usual 2 week break over Easter. With all the bad weather we've experienced over the past months, everyone's joie de vivre needs a bit of a lift so, while Caroline and Graham are off to Canada chasing the eclipse, here is a short haul option for the aviators among you.

You could take a trip to Edinburgh for a stroll along the Water of Leith from the city centre all the way to the Port of Leith with its stunning views over the Firth of Forth and the island of Inchmickery. The port itself is a fascinating place to explore and there is a signposted walk that starts at the Ocean Terminal, the shopping mall where the Royal Yacht Britannia is berthed and can be visited, then continues toward the old docks, and the newly regenerated quayside buildings of Edinburgh's old port with its many restaurants and bars. Alternatively, visit the Port of Leith Distillery and sample their acclaimed single malt scotch. Misty evenings are not uncommon at this time of year in Leith, so be sure to carry some warm clothes at all times.

Even if you donít fancy a trip away there are still plenty of other activities in London while thereís no dancing. Mastering your other hobbies, for example, will keep you busy all through the Spring. Fling reels, jigs and strathspeys aside then for a couple of weeks and come back in April refreshed and ready to go again.
