Braver than you Believe

Next term’s timetable will be with you shortly, thank you for your patience while we have been sorting it out! It has been no mean feat.

🎉 Announcement 🎉

The show this year will be dedicated in memory of Mrs Pat Prime who taught our dancers for many years and was much loved by all. 

🌳Pat loved Winnie the Pooh stories (based in our local Ashdown Forest), and for this reason, we are going with something a little different as a show name this year.
