THE Kandanga Oldtime Dance was a great success with 150 people packing into the Kandanga Memorial Hall last weekend.

The place was rocking to the beats of the Sunshine Swing Band, supper was sublime and the sea of smiling faces was evident from a truly appreciative crowd.

Such was the success of the event, another one is planned for later in the year by Kathy Worth and the Kandanga Hall Committee.
