Last weekend, a group of 19 WAY members attended a Ceilidh at the Ghillie Dhu in Edinburgh. WAYers travelled from Aberdeen in the north of Scotland to Salisbury in the south of England – and it was a great opportunity to make new friends, share stories and dance into the wee hours.
A three-course dinner and good chat was followed by traditional Scottish Ceilidh dancing (basically this involves set dancing, with a caller and live band and lots of laughter).
One of WAY’s local members in Scotland – known affectionately as ‘SWAYers’ – had suggested organising the Ceilidh for WAY members north and south of the border. He got together with the local Edinburgh area coordinators to throw the event open to members across the country.
The 19 revellers joined in with Ghillie Dhu’s weekly Ceilidh in Edinburgh and had a complete ball! Many thanks to all who attended.
