AROUND 50 dancers got together to celebrate 25 years of Evanton Social Dance Club at the Diamond Jubilee Hall in Evanton.

With live music by Ronnie Ross, the celebration included many old sequence dancing favourites such as the Bambi Blues, the Alpine Stroll and the Cindy Swing.

The group was delighted that original dancing teacher and founder, Thelma Weavers, who is now in her late 90s, was able to enjoy the afternoon’s entertainment – and cut the first slice ofa special birthday cake.

For many years she and her late husband, Cyril, introduced a large repertoire of sequence dances. After she retired, the group was lucky enough to find new instructors – Margaret and Frank Durdle – and so are able to continue to dance on a Wednesday afternoon.
