Meltham Blog/Input

I agree with Mike Critchlow about the traffic needs diverting during the day-events.Also, there was a lack of DANCING event, opportunities.On the Saturday some of my friends had come to Meltham and left fairly early, as there was no event to dance to.When I arrived mid-afternoon on the Saturday, I started a stroll to the last songs of Lilli De Carlo--we had only a small pavement area...then this was the end of the dancing.As you will know, many enjoy these 1940'2 events for the dancing, as well…See More

It was that time of year again, when people all went mad And dressed up in wartime gear and walked about. Friday night started out with the 'Swing Commanders' group, With songs and music 1940's style, The church hall floor bounced madly with the dancing crowd, The place was filled with laughter for a while.…See More
