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
