Well, I have some lovely memories of dancing with the group, but I'm much too old to Polka these days !
I really enjoyed my time with you. Thank you for making me feel welcome as a member of Spriditis, even though I am of Lithuanian descent, rather than Latvian.
I particularly remember our trip to De Montford Hall in Leicestershire; we were so nervous about our big audience, but it was such a wonderful experience.
I also remember how enthusistic I was embroidering my blouse; and how proud I was to wear my full costume for the first time. I wish I could remember the name of the lady who helped me to make my costume: she made my head-dress. I remember travelling to her home in Bradford to do this. I was very grateful to her.
I have quite a few photographs, as you can see the quality is quite poor, but I'm happy to share them with you. Sadly, the picture of the boys is scratched in the middle.
