Cobtree Scottish Country Dancing Group

The home of Scottish Country Dancing in Maidstone

Welcome to the Cobtree Scottish Dancing Group Website.

Scottish Country Dancing is fun and combines both physical and mental exercise. You don’t need a partner, special clothing or equipment to get started, just soft shoes.

We meet on Wednesday evening from 8 until 10 pm throughout the year at Grove Green Community Hall.

The government regulations about most things relating to Covid have now ended but the infection rate is still high. Those in good health, who are fully vaccinated usually have an illness no worse than influenza with the current variant of Covid. Not all our members have the good fortune to have no underlying health issues. They may wish to take measures to protect themselves.

At our latest committee meeting we updated our guidance for those wishing to dance at Cobtree.
A statement explaining the arrangements for the evenings up to the AGM was read out on the 23rd March and subsequently e-mailed to members.
You can read the statement here.

We are still focused on keeping everyone as safe as possible when they dance at Cobtree. So please do not come if you are not fully vaccinated or if you have any symptoms that may be Covid 19.
Protect yourself as you feel necessary and respect others who feel they need to wear face coverings.
Please be kind to your fellow dancers.
