End of An Era

As many will be aware, on the 5th July Anne Milton, Ballet and Dance teacher par excellence held her last School of Dance lesson at Cossington Village Hall.

Anne started teaching at Minehead whwen she took over her mother's dance school. As things progressed she then brout her talants to the Bridgwater area and it was in Cossington that she became so closely linked with the old wooden village hall and then the new build Trivetts Hall.
Anne was one of our most enduring users and spent 32 years giving ballet and dance instruction in her inimitable way. On nearly every week-day afternoon or evening one could hear the sound of ballet music and the almost silent accompanying steps of the varying age groups. There were, of course, also the more audible on stage sounds of tap dancing routines.

Anne recalls some wonderfool shows and demostrations which her students gave at the Milleniam celebrations, and functions held by the Friends and Neighbours, The Church, School Fetes, and the Strawberry Fair. There were very enjoyable times and illustrated the commitment to her high standard of teaching. Among her special memories are the results and credits obtained by her examination students. Anne and her students receive our congratulations.

An interesting legacy of her time at the hall is the "barre", which Anne had istalled as essential equipment for ballet excersises. This intrigues visitors and draws fascinating and complimentary remarks. We are very pleased that she has asked for it to be left in situ so that other dance/ exercise groups might use it.

We recently gave Anne a well earned leaving tea party at the hall. Our gratitude for her extended support was expressed and she was presented with some glasses as a token of our appreciation. The photograph shows Anne holding glass seated next to Valerie Sparkes.

Our very best wishes go to Anne and husband Mervyn
for a happy, relaxing retiremeng.
