About the Association

Sidcup & District Caledonian Association was founded in 1951 with the following aims:
"To promote social and friendly intercourse among those connected with Scotland and resident within Sidcup and District and to encourage and promote the study and preservation of language, literature, history, folklore, music and traditions of Scotland."

During the early years, Dancing, Badminton, Table Tennis and Drama were all practiced but apart from the occasional day trips and short breaks organised by our Social Secretary, our only activity these days is Scottish Country Dancing.
