GUEST,Dave Hunt 2020 Obit: Sheila Mainwaring (UK) (11) Obit: Sheila Mainwaring 15 Jul 20

I'm very Sad to announce the death of Sheila Mainwaring..on 12th July 2020 - .she had been in a care home for quite a while and over the last five years the onset of dementia meant that she gradually lost cognitive functions - did not recognise visitors and so on.
Sheila was the founder/editor of a folk magazine for Shropshire and surrounding areas - Shreds and Patches and also a well know caller of Ceilidh and Contra dances.
For many years she organised the dances at Sidmouth- What some called Dance for Dancers (awful term!) but what she jokingly referred to as the 'posh dances' and for many years she booked the bands and callers for these events.
She was a founder member of Giffard Country Dance display team and took over running it when Jim Billson retired.
Sheila will be sadly missed by friends all over the country.
