Report to the EFDSS Cambridge branch from The Round 1942-3
The year 1942-3 has been a very successful one in the annals of the Round. Many new members have been welcomed to the meetings which were held in the Fitzroy Hall every Saturday during Full Term. Membership was high in spite of the dearth of men. The terminal parties, a great success, were held in Sidgwick Hall, Newnham College, whilst a fourth party took place on a mid term Saturday afternoon in the Fitzroy Hall. The standard of dancing became progressively higher and such was the keenness of the dancers that it was decided to devote part of the meetings to the teaching of the Kentucky Running Set. A Morris class for a smaller number was also held earlier on Saturday afternoons. During the course of the year the Round has lost Dr Peck to Oxford and very much regrets his absence. Several other members have gone down and are much missed, but it is hoped that the coming year will replenish the Round's numbers, especially with musically gifted members.
