Tudor Squares Xmas Card Charity

Every year instead of sending Christmas cards to one another  Tudor squares members make a donation to support a charity.

This year we will be donating to the Waterside Centre in Kings Langley which provides activties for local folk.

Most of those who attend Waterside are funded by Herts County Council, others may pay through direct payments or via their living service. They come from a large area, from Tring to Watford and St. Albans; and from a variety of settings, living at home with family, in residential care, supported living or independently in the community.

Some individuals have additional needs including epilepsy, autism, physical disabilities, sensory impairments or mental health disorders

Please give your donations to your rep, As the mainstream’s  last night is the 5th December please bring your donation to the party.

Thanks to the General Election being held on 12th December, we have had to change the date of the Tudor Squares Party.

There will be dancing at all levels from Basic to Advanced and FREE refreshments.

Please note that all dancers and all those folk who haven’t been able/ fit enough to dance recently are most welcome to attend.

The usual £4 club night fee will apply to cover the hall and caller fee but a selection of refreshments will be provided at no additional charge.

In order to cater, we need to know the number of folk who will be coming.
