Organiser Christine Stanton said the club took the summer off each year but resumed its sched- ule in March. About 16 people usually turn up to the weekly meetings, which are held on Monday nights at St David's Church hall. She said dancing was good for memory and exer- cise. Christine said because Scottish country danc- ing steps are the same worldwide, once partici- pants have learnt them, they can dance anywhere in the world. Richmond woman Bev Schroder has been atten- ding the club since the mid-1970s. She said she initially joined because Scottish country dancing was one of the few forms of dance that did not require participants to bring a partner, but it was the social aspect that kept her coming back. Bev explained that dancers were not allowed to dance with the same partner more than twice in a session, so everybody was mixed up'' together. If somebody makes a mistake, which we all do, we all have a good laugh,'' she said. She said she and the other dancers all made a point of inviting anybody new at the sessions to dance, as it was the only way anyone's going to learn how to do it''. Bev thought it took about six weeks to learn the steps. Dance tutor Sue Bowater said she had been with the club for nearly 40 years. She explained the Richmond branch had stemmed from a club in Nelson central which was turning 60 this year. The club is one of six between Picton and Motu- eka which meet once each year in November to hold a St Andrew's Dance and a shared dinner. Those interested in joining can call Christine on 544 0902 or president Pam Smith on 541 8211. Free parking days return Nelson City Council is offering free parking on Tuesdays over winter once again. This will be the third winter that Free Parking Tuesdays have been offered. This year they'll run from July 2 until September 3, a total of nine weeks. We've had nothing but positive feedback on Free Parking Tuesdays over the last two winters so we're delighted to offer it again and for a longer period this year,'' Mayor Aldo Miccio said. Although there will be no charge at the meters, shoppers need to be aware that current time limits still apply and parking wardens will be enforcing them, so people will need to check on the meter and parking signage to confirm how long they can stay. The area where Free Parking Tuesday will be available includes everywhere you currently pay for parking in the CBD including the four parking squares.
