Dear Ceilidh With Us, we wanted to thank YOU all for a wonderful evening on Saturday! It really was a great evening - as I'm sure you realised from so many smiling faces and so many people who enjoyed the opportunity to dance. The caller sized us up very quickly and put together a great programme of dances to appeal to the more and less experienced dancers - We so appreciated your musicianship and the blend of instruments. Remko - your sound and light system created a great atmosphere, I genuinely think people would have danced all night, given half the chance! Many people have already said what fun they had and how much they enjoyed the evening. These are sobering times so thank you so much for helping us create a relaxed and cheerful atmosphere where we could celebrate birthdays and friendship. Lilac, you were so helpful from our very first conversation and made sure everything ran so smoothly. I feel sure we'll find another opportunity to book you all again. With our best wishes and grateful thanks, Deborah and Sandy
