New Years Day in Alton

A regular annual event - OBJ, Alton, Fleet, Minden Rose and Knickerbocker Glory danced in Alton Market Square on New Years Day

The first dance was everyone's favourite - Dilwyn

This is probably White Ladies Aston, judging by the look on Dave's face

Chris, Colin and Dave K are facing us, and Mike G is facing away.
