Scottish Country Dancing - Red Deer Centre.

The Red Deer Centre in Alberta Ave, East Kilbride hosts a variety of classes throughout the year including Scottish Country Dancing on Monday mornings.

The class is part of the Activities in Retirement programme organised by the centre and the new session of Scottish Country Dancing resumes on Monday 2nd September in the Red Deer Centre, East Kilbride from 10.00am till 12noon.

New  members who would like to be part of a friendly and fun class would be made most welcome.

 A knowledge of basic steps e.g.  Pas-de-basque, skip change etc. would be an advantage.

Aileen Mairs and Patricia Leslie work together to make up the dance programmes and ensure a varied and interesting selection of jigs, reels and strathspeys are included at each class. Each dance is 'called' and 'walked through'.

The class is also very proud of their fundraising efforts. In the last session they raised £600 which was divided

between EK Dementia Carers Group, Kilbryde Hospice, Lanarkshire Cancer Care Trust and the Beatson Centre.

If you would like further details please contact Aileen Mairs on EK233613 or come along any

 Monday morning - you will be made most welcome.

Red Deer Country Dance Class.

It is with sadness we intimate the passing of Margaret Williamson on Wednesday 21 April 2021.

Margaret loved Scottish Country Dancing and obtained her country dancing teachers' certificate when she was at Jordanhill College doing her teacher training.

Sadly she only took the Red Deer class for a short time when her health deteriorated after being Margaret Martin's deputy for years. She also took the Claremont class for a few years. Margaret was always enthusiastic about her dance programmes, introducing new and 'challenging' dances for the class.

She encouraged both of us to choose and call dances to build up our experience and confidence in leading the class and we are grateful for the advice and guidance she gave us.

Margaret will be sadly missed and on behalf of our class, we have sent a message of sympathy to the family.

Patricia & Aileen
