A Scottish country dancer in Chiswick has been given the society's highest accolade for his services to groups around the world.
Jerry Reinstein of Bedford Park was recognised for his achievements to The Royal Scottish Country Dance Society (RSCDS) with the scroll of honour presented by chairman John Wilkinson at the AGM conference in Perth on Saturday (8).
Born in New York, Mr Reinstein is vice chairman of the Chiswick Scottish country dance club, and began toe-tapping in San Francisco which he has been perfecting ever since.
Mr Reinstein is the founder along with his wife Danielle of the Paris RSCDS branch, and also serves on the London branch.
He said: "Scottish country dancing has been a very important part of my life for such a long time and has been the source of so many friendships and such great fun.
"I am honoured to receive this RSCDS scroll recognising my contribution over many years and in many different places."
Chiswick Scottish Club chairman Michael Nolan said: “We are absolutely delighted that Jerry has been honoured in this way.
"His knowledge of and contribution to Scottish Dancing has been and remains immense, we are very proud of him and are fortunate to have him as our vice chairman.
"On behalf of Chiswick Scottish Country Dance Club we congratulate Jerry.”
End of term festivities will see more than 80 Scottish country dancers gather for the annual Kilts and Posh Frocks dance at Chiswick Community School on December 7.
The club's classes are held at St Michael & All Angels Church Hall, Bath Road, London W4 1TT next to Turnham Green Underground Station.
