Eydon Ladies meeting was held in the village hall on Wednesday 21st February, we were joined by two visitors joining our group for the evening.
This month was a meeting to keep us all warm when we were put through our paces by Pat Cannell and Diane Charteris who explained the history of how country dancing was first introduce into Britian.
Initially dances were for the elite society but were very difficult and complicated and taught by French Dancing Masters.
However the elite noticed that the hoi polloi seemed to actually be enjoying simpler dances and this encouraged John Playford to produce a book called “The English Dancing Master” in 1651 which was used in country dancing for more than 200 years.
However Eydon Ladies tried very hard but with some of us not knowing our right from our left some confusion reigned but thanks to Pat’s patience we all had a very enjoyable evening.
A small gift was presented to Sue McRoberts in appreciation for her support and help of Eydon Ladies over many years.
This month’s raffle was in remembrance of Kevin and raised the magnificent sum of £125 which will be donated to MacMillan Nurses. The prize winners were Pauline Grant
