This was followed the Grand March led by our piper, Richard Galley.

George Hogg then led us through his varied dance programme starting with the Gay Gordans and finishing with a request for the Glengarry Swing. In the dance interval we had a Pipers' Medley, where Paul Brown joined Richard.



Despite only 43 people attending the event, there was a benefit that more room was available for dancing, in fact there were three sets up for all dances.

It was another enjoyable evening for the Society.
