A ceilidh dance at Winchelsea on March 11 raised £1,611 for St Michael’s Hospice at Home service.

This is the charity chosen by the Mayoress of Winchelsea.

The event included demonstration dances by the Hastings Scottish Country Dance Group with music supplied by the Muscadin Ceilidh Band.

Winchelsea New Hall was decked with tartan bunting and table decorations and a number of people turned out in kilts.

A strong link has been forged between the Scottish Country Dancing Group and Winchelsea via the local Zumba class, some of whom have joined the Dancing Group.

The money raised with the dance makes a grand total of £6781 raised by the Mayoress for Hospice at Home since June 2015.
