Branch News Update March 13 2020

Ballarat Minerva Social postponed - We have been advised that the Ballarat SCD Group has, sadly, come to the decision to postpone the Minerva Social which was to take place on Saturday 28 March. After much discussion about the known nature of SCD and the unknown nature of COVID 19 they have erred on the side of caution and cancelled the social at this time.

Geelong Highland Gathering (15 March) and Ringwood Highland Games & Celtic Festival (29 March) have also been cancelled.

The Monbulk CFA was the recipient of the wonderful donation of $545.00 raised at the Branch Opening Social – they were delighted to receive the generous donation from our dancers.

At the recent Melbourne & District Branch AGM, a Working Party was established to identify ways in which participation in Scottish Country Dancing throughout Victoria could be increased. In December, the Working Party conducted a survey of dancers. The Branch Committee and Working Party would like to thank everyone who contributed to the survey. The results of the survey can be accessed by clicking the above link. The findings from the survey were communicated to Delegates at the February Delegates Meeting. Further feedback from the Working Party will be provided at the Delegates Meeting in May. If you wish to provide any further feedback on the survey, please email Sarah Wrigley at
