Light fantastic

Thursday, 7 April 2011

Dear Editor

Regarding the article in your paper [Issue 190] about the proposed sale of the Assembly Rooms and maybe its transformation into  a shopping centre, how sad a day will that be?

I remember as a young man of 18 years (now 81) learning to dance and meeting  young women of similar age to try and dance the light fantastic on its  wonderful dancefloor – reputed to be one of the best in Edinburgh. Those days  live well in my memory, for in later years my wife and I danced many a Quickstep on that floor.
My thanks to all at the paper.

God  Bless
