Ashford Folk Dancers (AFD ) celebrated in style this Valentine’s Day on Wednesday 14th February as it was their regular Wednesday club night. Most dancers wore hearts to celebrate the day.

Barrie Bullimore, Chairman of AFD, said “We all had great fun; Valentine’s Day is the opportunity to do some very special dances. Our caller Carol Hewson made sure to keep calling the dances over the recorded music which helps us to dance in unison.”

John Russell, treasurer, was very pleased with the usual turn-out of dancers. “We meet every Wednesday at St Mary’s Parish Hall in Sunbury from 8pm to 10.15pm. It is only £2.00 for members and £2.50 for non-members. It is excellent value for money, which includes tea or coffee and biscuits during the break.”

Annie Sugrue, dancer, said “We exercise without noticing it. We meet and dance with friends, accompanied by lovely music in a nice hall with a large carpark.” She added “Anyone is very welcome whether you are a novice or experienced. The first night is free anyway, so why don’t you give it a try? Please only bring soft shoes and wear comfortable clothes”.
