Subject: SEFAN:207-06-21:03. EFDSS 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 House


"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 EFDSS".


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 recipients.


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 together.
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.
