At the RSCDS AGM held in Perth at the beginning of November our Branch musician, George Meikle, was presented with a scroll for services to the Society. See his photo in our Galleries.
There is now a Facebook page for the Branch.
We are the local association of an international movement known as the RSCDS. Our main purpose is to enjoy dancing Scottish country dances. The branch was formed in 1947 and currently has around 100 members.
If you are interested in starting to dance, here is the opportunity to take up an activity that provides healthy exercise to keep you fit, mental activity to keep your brain alert and a great social life with people who enjoy dancing to great Scottish music.
What is more, Scottish country dancing is a relatively cheap pastime, there is no need for special dress (though many dancers acquire traditional items) and you do not have to have a partner.
