- Diamond Anniversary Year
As many of you will already be aware, 2018 is the 60th anniversary of the formation of Staplers. We therefore have a few extras planned for the year to mark this special occasion.
Firstly, for our three regular public dances we have chosen callers who all have a long association with the club. Full details are on the Future Events page and we hope you will enjoy the dances.
In addition to these, there will be an extra public dance which will be a tea dance at St Ippolyts on 15 April 2018 from 3.00-6.00 pm. Kevin Prigmore will be calling with the band Kelly's Eye. On display will be some Staplers memorabilia from the past 60 years including archive video recordings of Hitchin Gatherings newly transferred to DVD.
There will also be a special Club Sunday lunch. This will be on Sunday 7 October 2018 which is the Sunday immediately after the Anniversary Dance so that you will be able to make a weekend of it and join us for both!
Finally, we have commissioned a new dance for the club to mark this major anniversary. Called the Hitchin Diamond and composed by Colin Hume (dance and music), it will be introduced by our chairman, Ann, on the first club night of 2018.
