Doe Demure Does Burlesque!

Get your heels out ladies! Doe Demure, performer, instructor and Skytribe Dance Studio owner will be leading us through an interactive dance class at our monthly tonight!  She will take us through various walks, routines and burlesque pin-up poses.

Doe advises that you wear clothing that you can move in and, if possible, a pair of heels you are comfortable walking in.   If you wish, you are most welcome to dress up with gloves, stockings, bustles, etc.

Sounds like a really fun evening so come and enjoy and do what ever feels comfortable for you!

Thornton’s Jewellers – fascinating talk!

Also, if members have any old towels they wish to donate for animal bedding for the ‘Exotic Animals’ we saw in July, please could you bring them along – but not too many!

Instead of the normal raffle, we are going to do a Surprise Jar raffle, suggested by Fiona, our ‘raffle lady’! If members could each fill a jar with anything you wish and bring it along; it could be a jar of recipes, smellies, sweeties, bulbs, crafts. Use your imagination!
