Councillors take up the case of local Line Dancing Group ahead of Lammas Fair

1 Mins read

The “Topp line dancers” got in touch with Councillor Darryl Wilson yesterday regarding an issue with their planned charity dance. This group have performed line dancing at the Lammas fair for the last 25 years raising a sizeable sum of money for various worthwhile charities.

It is understood that the line dancing has traditionally taken place on the seafront (opposite the hotel), no stage is used, the dancers simply perform on the path/paved area, which is council property. The group planned to do this year but council requested (for the first time) that they take out their own insurance (at a cost of between £250 and £500) or they will not be permitted to perform. This cost would have prohibited the line dancers from taking part in the fair/raising money.

A number of elected representatives took up the case and following their intervention a resolution has been found.
