December Party

December saw us celebrating at our Christmas party

We started with our usual ‘stand-up-sit-down’ Bingo and then proceeded to take part in some swing dancing

Our teachers were TC and Joyce.  They gave us a demonstration of the 1940s dancing style and then taught us some 1940s strolls. This kind of dancing was very popular in the war years because it could be enjoyed by groups of people and partners were not required

Many of our members dressed in 1940 style clothing and looked fantastic

We learnt several strolls and had a really good time  We mostly remembered the steps and no toes were broken in the process!

We had a really good supper and obviously some very nice cake to complete the evening

There was a Secret Santa opportunity so many of us even went home with Christmas presents

Ruth Gosden had asked members to donate toys for the Children’s Refuge and there was a good response.  Ruth was able to take lots of toys away at the end of the evening and along with Sowood WI make the donation to the children

A great evening was had by all
