I started Calling in 1967 at School when the teacher behind with her marking, then my big break was running our Playfordgroup( dances 1600-1900) for 3 months whilst our leader when to visit his son in Malawi and set up the Library service

Later on in life I called at several EFDSS (english folk dance and song society) affiliated Clubs covering WIltshire,Bristol,Somerset and Devon,

I am a life Member of the society and have caller insurance with them, I took up Scottish Dancing in 1967

I run Weston-s-mare folk dance group.

occassionally I sometimes get invited to Call for the odd Barn Dance.

At folk festivals I try and dance as much American Contra and Squares as I can.
