I started dancing at the Normandy Old Time Dance Club (now known as the Normandy Sequence Club) with my mother in 1953 and I am still a member today. I was Secretary of the Club from 1959 until 1972.

For many years, I was the Leader partnered by Alf Puttock, of the P.P. Old Time & Modern Sequence Dance Club based in Guildford. Following the sad loss of Alf in 1996, I continued to run the Club assisted by various partners, namely Lionel Wood, Harold Barker and Richard Purcell, and not being able to find a suitable regular partner, I resigned as leader in 1997. From 2001 - 2003, Richard and I were leaders of the Normandy Sequence Dance Club.

As will be seen from Richard's Profile, I have known him for over 40 years, and first began dancing with him at the Chiddingfold Club in Surrey.

I have twice been President of the Wey Valley Sequence Dance Club Association, served on their Dance Selection Committee, and have been a member of the main Committee for many years.

I joined the Old Time Dance Society in January 1987, and have acted as Area Rep. for Surrey and NE Hants since April 1997, and was elected on to the Committee in October 2003, I have also served as Treasurer and became Chairman in October 2006.

Although dancing takes up a fair proportion of my time, my other interests include gardening, watching most sports (especially athletics, cricket and tennis), card making , golf, the U3A and the National Trust. I am also on the management committee of the Normandy Village Hall.
