Squire’s Tour 30th September


Not quite the wettest day of the year but close!

Fourteen members of Crook gathered in the cafe at Levens Hall on the morning of 30th September and debated whether we were going to be able to do any dancing at all but then there was a brief lull in the rain. We carefully positioned the musicians in the only covered area in the courtyard – in front of the loos - and managed four dances before rain definitely stopped play. We even had a small but appreciative audience.

As the social event had been organised at Maggie and John Stockdale’s for the evening Maggie was happy for us to go straight there, abandoning any thought of more dancing. The other venues entirely understood our need to cancel, so the Tour consisted of two stops, Levens Hall and Tullythwaite, Underbarrow.

Many thanks to Maggie for hosting us and preparing the wonderful food, to those who brought puddings and to Crook members for an entertaining evening.
