The Ladies will have you in for Tea and the men will take you to the Pidgeon Loft.
You better learn to dance too, that is a big feature in the village hall I understand.

Ha ha,I can dance like Fred Astair James.Your mention of the Pigeon Loft brought back some long lost memories as I do remember as A child men keeping pigeons there.And tea with the ladies sounds fine ha ha.

Last comment for tonight, its past my bedtime nanny says.

You mention Fred Astair, his partner Ginger Rogers was asked once what it was like to dance with the great man
she replied " I do all the same steps as mr. Astair.................in high heels..........going backwards.

While I'm here could anyone tell me where this could be.It's from my great grandparents marriage certificate.The groom is living in South Street Armadale and the marriage took place in Armadale.The bride is listed as a domestic servant at these mills which I presume must be or have been in that area.But what is the name of the mills.

Now added a pic of Gorgie Mills with grateful thanks to Alan.
