Cirencester Ramblers

Barn Dance at Down Ampney

On Friday night 31st March about 60 members and guests danced the night away to the music of The Amazing Matchless Band at Down Ampney Village Hall. With the help of their expert caller we were guided through numerous dances. Halfway through the evening we replenished energy levels by tucking into the bring and share supper, which provided plenty for all with second helping if required. The bar ensured that fluid levels were maintained through the evening.

Our thanks go to the Amazing Matchless Band for another enjoyable evening and to the Committee of Down Ampney Village Hall for their help and the use of the Hall first rate facilities
