Galston Zumba in­struc­tor, Nina knows how to throw a cel­e­bra­tion party.

Nina wanted to ac­knowl­edge her 8 years as an in­struc­tor by bring­ing to­gether her stu­dents in a glam­orous and cel­e­bra­tory evening of mer­ri­ment. It is ap­par­ent that in Nina’s cir­cle there is an abun­dance of tal­ent and on the night we had a non stop pro­gramme of singers, fea­tured dancers, bur­lesque and even a pole dancer. Our Galston group worked on a chore­ographed rou­tine to ‘Ain’t she Sweet’ and de­spite prac­tis­ing over a num­ber of weeks the 25 strong troupe al­most got it right on the night….well ac­tu­ally I should only speak for my­self and apol­o­gise to the girls for those ‘oops’ steps I added and ‘oops’ steps I for­got.. The weeks of re­hearsal and the wardrobe assem­bly were all a part of the fun and the ac­tual night was daz­zlingly spec­tac­u­lar. Nina, you are a su­per star!

by 10:45am on Sun­day 11th Novem­ber.

Well, ten firies, mostly in uni­form, at­tended, along with five chil­dren and three horses. They lis­tened to “The Last Post” from a car ra­dio, whilst two saluted and all stood to at­ten­tion. The Flag had been at half-mast since 10:30 am and af­ter the 11am “Min­utes Si­lence”, was raised as the “Reveille” was heard.

I do hope many who drove past on Mid Du­ral Rd at this time no­ticed our Bri­gade’s hon­our­ing ser­vice of Re­mem­brance.
