Llangunllo WI and Friends Take To The Floor

The Llangunllo WI Line Dancing

Our April meeting was great fun and saw 17 members and friends take to the floor in Llangunllo Community Hall to have a go at line dancing. Our teacher for the evening was Debby Amer, who took us through the origins and history of line dancing which was very interesting, before she set about teaching us a number of steps that formed increasingly more complicated dances.

There were lots of laughs during the hour, and the level of concentration was clearly visible on faces as the group tried to remember the steps, whether it was to the left or right, let alone putting it all together into the dances. Needless to say, some were much better than others!! But everyone got there in the end, and as an observer I have to say they looked very impressive.

After all that concentration and exercise it was time to enjoy a lovely supper, a glass or two and a catch up before we had our business meeting, where we had an update on our up and coming programme, and what our WI will be doing to raise the awareness of the state of our own local river.

Six members of Llangunllo WI (river swimmers and citizen scientist water monitors) have sent a letter to Peter Perry, CEO of Welsh Water, regarding Welsh Water data showing that in 2022, the sewer storm overflow in Llangunllo spilled 79 times for a total of 1522.25 hours – amongst the top 5% worst offenders in Wales. He has put us in touch with Steve Wilson, MD of the Waste Water business and we are eagerly awaiting his response. Meanwhile, please take part in the BIG RIVER WATCH yourself. In just 15 minutes you can join people from across the country taking a good look at their local rivers. Download the app or print out the form from
