Future meetings postponed

posted 27 Jul 2020, 02:53 by Mark Joyce

Hi Everyone

I hope you are keeping well.

Regretfully, the committee have now decided that it is unlikely that the club will be meeting again this year and we are cancelling the Saturday night dances planned for early 2021. We will, of course, continue to regularly review the situation and I will keep you informed of any changes  to this decision and of course I will let you know in plenty of time when we feel we can safely meet up.

Take care in these strange and uncertain times, and let's hope we can resume our dancing before too long.


Covid - 19 (Coronavirus)

posted 14 Mar 2020, 04:15 by Mark Joyce

In view of the developing situation with Covid - 19, we have decided to temporarily suspend our Monday club nights.
We hope to recommence after Easter on Monday 20th April, but please look out for further updates either by email nearer the time, or checking the website (http://www.prestonfolkdanceclub.org.uk/) for updates.

We are doing our best to contact all our members, but if you know of anyone who comes and who may not have an email address, then please could you pass this message on.

It was a hard decision to make and I, for one, will dearly miss our Monday evenings out with you all. However, hopefully a little prudence now will be worth it and we can all get back to normality before too long.

Best wishes, stay well, and hope to see you soon.


Spring Dance Cancelled

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic the committee has today reluctantly decided to cancel the dance planned for Saturday 21st March.

This was not an easy decision to make, but we feel that the wellbeing of our members and guests must take priority, and I hope that you will understand our reasons for doing this.

Windmill Visit

posted 28 Jun 2017, 11:25 by Mark Joyce

Vivienne organised a visit to Little Marton Windmill at Blackpool as part of our Summer activities. As a few people were on holiday we didn't manage to get the minimum number of 20 but with inviting friends we were able to go ahead with the visit. It was a very interesting talk and tour and some were brave enough to go up the steep steps to the third floor. The volunteers are very enthusiastic and told us about the history of the Windmill and there were displays of other Windmills in the area and an opportunity to see the mechanical workings of it.
