Goathland had the traditional day of dance on the 18th January with six teams out and about. Followed of course by the Plough Rosh where 90 guests sat down to eat and where entertained by Pete Coe, Sue & Alice singing songs collected by Frank Kitson from Goathland around 1890 including Scarborough Fayre which was written by Alan Wardell who lived in the village.
December last year saw a Charity Fund Raising at the Spa Whitby which featured The Wilsons, Ryeburn 3 Step, Martin Holland, Sallyport and Goathland all put together by Doc Rowe & Jill.
Early doors January it was Straw Bear at Whittlesea and the Blessing of The Plough Service the next day in Goathland. May sees the team of to Boston Massachusetts amongst other events and it’s 93 years since the side reformed after a break of some 30 years.
You can see the Stots dancing at the recent Straw Bear Festival JUST HERE.
