Kent Association of Scottish Societies

Welcome to the KASS Website.

Update 7th December 2020

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Kent is now in Tier 3. The treatment for those with the virus has improved, if we are unfortunate enough to need hospital treatment we have a lower chance of dying than earlier in the year.
We are still some way from resuming normal dancing activity. The first doses of a vaccine are about to be distributed, but with the need for two doses and a slight delay to gain immunity, the first people will be protected by mid January and the rest of us will follow on behind them.
I have received an updated diary which you will find here. Please do not assume events scheduled will happen because the Diary does not say they are cancelled. Not everyone lets Nigel know when they have decided they cannot hold their event.

There have not been any KASS Committee meetings this year and we are indebted to the officers for continuing in their roles beyond their normal or planned period of service.

You will see a number of changes on the website. These changes are partly because KASS has been made aware that they are using copyright images in documents on the website without appropriate licensing. This oversight is expensive and I have made changes to remove any material I think may be suspect.

The website and KASS is not responsible for the content clubs ask us to publish on their pages so please be very careful with any material you use.

The Thanet Caledonians and the Isle of Thanet pages have been updated
