Raising Money for Macmillan Nurses

sweet salsa fundraising for macmillan nursesThis September sees us raising funds for Macmillan Nurses.

This is a very worthy cause that most families have contact with at some time in their lives and speaking from personal experience they provide a fantastic service during very emotional and upsetting times.

We will be selling a range of home made cakes at our Monday night class on the 23rd of September so bring your money if you have a sweet tooth.

Friday saw Carol and Alan from Noches de Salsa hold their monthly party, this time at Tiffanys on the prom and if you like your salsa hot then this was the place to be. It was so hot.. It seemed that a great time was had by all.

New Dance Class Venue Search

As some of you know already we are on the lookout for a new venue for our Wednesday evening dance classes as The Pickerings has sadly had to close it's doors. Well, it's not proving to be all that easy to find a suitable room in the Garstang area. None of the pubs seem to have function rooms and the only thing we've found so far is an old church hall that is due to be demolished anytime soon so you can imagine what that is like.
