Neil Franklin created the topic: Announcement of deaths
Here in the West Midlands we have had 3 people die this year who were known in the folk dance world well outside of their immediate locality. Therefore there may well be friends who do not find out until it is too late to pay their respects.
May I suggest that the forum includes a page for such announcements and also the announcement of any subsequent "Celebration of Life" event.
One such event hereabouts is to celebrate the folk dance life of Arnold Gray with a folk dance on April 13th in Stourbridge
