Ceilidh’s – A brief description for those who have never been to one.

Céilidhs are still an important and popular social outlet in rural parts of Ireland and Scotland, especially in the Gaelic-speaking regions. Céilidhs are sometimes held on a smaller scale in private or public houses, for example in remote rural hinterlands and during busy festivals.

Céilidh music may be provided by an assortment of fiddle, flute, tin whistle, accordion, bodhrán, and in more recent times also drums, guitar and electric bass guitar. The music is cheerful and lively, and the basic steps can be learned easily; a short instructional session will be provided for new dancers before the start of the dance itself.

Dancing at Céilidhs is usually in the form of Céilidh dances, set dances or couple dances. A “Set” consists of six to eight couples, with each pair of couples facing another in a square or rectangular formation. Each couple exchanges position with the facing couple, and also facing couples exchange partners, while all the time keeping in step with the beat of the music.

However, about half of the dances in the modern Céilidh are couple dances performed in a ring. These can be performed by fixed couples or in the more sociable “progressive” manner, with the lady moving to the next gentleman in the ring at or near the end of each repetition of the steps.

They are fun, you meet new friends and you don’t have to worry about taking the wrong turn. Everyone is the same in getting it wrong sometimes and laughing a lot. A great evening’s entertainment. Let the children show you how it should be done. They learn the steps very quickly.

Queensbury Community Re-CYCLING at it’s best

Anyone want to help bag the gravel? 10 Tons is a lot to handle. Contact Norah at email address below.

From: Norah McWilliam [mailto:nmjmcw@gmail.com] Sent: 23 April 2015 22:16 To: Cllr Paul Cromie Cc: David Dodwell; Helen Simpson Subject: Station Road

Hello Paul

here we are again at the beginning of the outdoor fun phase of the year. Cycle Queensbury are busily planning another Family Fun Rides Day on the GNRT on May 17th and we wondered if you would be able to persuade one of those huge sweeping things to give Station Road a once-over like you managed to last year ???

Don’t know how you did it, but it really helped to avoid a lot of kids skidding (we do advise families to walk down, but who wouldn’t want to give it a go!)

If you can’t use the gravel I can! (would have to be dropped in bags at top of Peel Street – but I can pay something reasonable … I do happen to have a few of those very large square gravel bags.

a cunning plan, eh ? – but maybe you can use the swept up gravel anyway

Hope you can swing it

cheers

Norah

Hi Norah,

Yes it will be easy to  persuade ££££££ one of those huge sweeping things to give Station Road a once-over like you managed to last year ???

Lynda and I will pay the sweeper man/woman to sweep it again.

As for the sweepings,  we swept over 10 tonnes last year and we took it to my mates tip/recycling works but it can be tipped where you want it but it won’t be bagged you will have to bag it yourselves and it will be FREE.

Kind regards Paul n Lynda

Fantastic!

many thanks

oh- and can I get to drive the JCB​ thing for a bit ??

norah

NO.

You cant get to drive the JCB/sweeper wagon thing,  I live on Station Road.

You could however drive it down your street I suppose if the owner would let you.
