Dancing event was wonderful


It was wonderful to read all about the Bollywood dancing event held in Ilkeston Market Place which broke the old world record and set a new one.

We at Midlands Co-operative Society were delighted to sponsor and promote the event and were amazed how many people turned up on the day.

Congratulations to Kate Le Prevost of Ilkeston School for all her hard work arranging the event and well done to all the youngsters who joined in so enthusiastically.

Des Coleman showed again why he is one of the best comperes in the Midlands and the staff in the Co-op Store joined in and volunteers from the Member Relations Committee served complimentary strawberries & cream.

The weather stayed kind to us and the Advertiser’s photographs showed how much everyone involved – around 3,000 people all told – enjoyed the spectacle.
