Anniversary Awards- Congratulations to the SEFAN recipients.
Dear Network Folk
EFDSS recently nominated 75 people to receive
their "Anniversary Award' to
celebrate the 75th anniversary of the merging of the
Dance and Song Societies.
The awards event was held on June 11th at Cicil Sharp
"The recipients of the awards were all nominated for
enthusing others to participate in folk music, dance
or song, for making a significant contribution to
research, for being an outstanding teacher or performer, or
for giving outstanding service to the
Anniversary Award winners within SEFAN are
Anthony and Penny Allen,
for the work of SEFAN.
Lawrence Heath, in recognition of Godalming Ceilidhs (and many other
folk events in Surrey ).
John Heydon, for Haddenham Ceilidhs.
Roger Watson of TAPS.
May Anthony and I, on behalf of
the Board of Trustees, add our congratulations to the three other SEFAN
I had hoped for speedy sight of the full list of names
to check if any other network members had been awarded -
unfortunately, the particular organiser in EFDSS declined
to provide the full list electronically - even to their Company
Secretary, Mary Wilson-Jones (who is also the Co.Sec of
SEFAN). I have no idea why!
So, regretfully, it has taken this long to get it
I believe that no further SEFAN members were
awarded - hopefully someone will swiftly correct me if I am wrong!
Apologies again for the tardiness of our announcement,
and congratulations to the three SEFAN members.
Penny Allen - General Manager
Anthony John Allen - Chair of the board
