News

Bert Whittaker

It is with great sadness that we report the death of Bert Whittaker after a long period of failing health. Bert was involved in Scottish Dancing in the East of the county for many years and countless people have been helped to become dancers over that time.
Bert was a pillar of Sittingbourne SCD Group and taught dances to their members and helped transport them to meetings and dances at other clubs in the area.
The funeral will be held at Milstead in early August. Details are available from club secretaries.

Read an appreciation of Bert
from Kate Middleham.

Note: Announcements such as this are normally carried on club pages, but where there are special circumstances,
such as the club having closed, they will appear here.
