Latest News

MAY and things are progressing nicely thus far... and if the positive vaccine news continues... it's great to hear so many of you have had your first  'jab' (and now many of you have booked or imminently receiving your second jabs ), things are really on track.  We've got a plan for our “Southern Stomp” return 'WE WILL BE BACK'; as soon as we have agreed key dates and availability - we'll let you know.  As we've said before, for us, its about everyone being able to return (including us) and enjoying the experience - not worrying what we can't quite remember, but, having fun as our confidence grows and the steps start falling back into place ! ....  remember, we're all in this together.

When do classes restart?...  We now have a plan and unless something goes off the rails in the coming weeks, we hope to be able to publish those plans next month.  We know some see the 17th May as their trigger - not for us thanks; the 21st June and the Gov. directives that get published as we approach that date will hopefully affirm our plans and logic... but, before silly rumours start - we've never been in doubt  “Southern Stomp” Line Dance Club will return.

Let's hope the vaccine roll-out continues on its current trajectory...  and we can all return safely in good time.

MAY's Update:   Just a quick reminder of our weekly “Southern Stomp” Zoom meetings ~ they're great fun and a chance to 'catch up' and see one another ~ our next Quiz is Wednesday(s) at 7pm (invites in the usual way via email).

MAY 2021 announcements:  – It's absolutely fabulous to keep hearing on our “Southern Stomp” WhatsApp group - many of you have either had your first jab and 2nd going ahead... the vaccine updates are wonderful news, but, it's obviously going to take several months for us all to be in a situation where our three areas of  concern need to be met:-   1. Hall availability: under review - we're in regular contact, so we'll know when they are ready.   2. Insurance - ensure insurance cover is available; and,  3. Government Regulations: work in accordance with latest Government guidelines.

We miss you all madly – the dancing, laughter/chattering, the events and trips out… they’ll all return in good time, albeit slowly at first; we want to make sure we’re all in a healthy place and can enjoy them together WHEN the time is right.  Until we’re back, we’ll keep the weekly Zoom meetings going (every Wed at 7pm) – your feedback and messages of support have been really lovely so - thank you ALL… until we can get back on the dance floor together ~  let’s all keep safe and well  ~ Phil & Joy
