The last weekend in November sees the start of our Christmas activities, beginning with our annual Christmas Dance, held in the Weatherley Centre on the Saturday.
A team of Club Members gathered in the afternoon to get the hall prepared, to greet the band, the very popular New Vintage Plus, & ensure they had everything they needed for the evening. Finally to prepare the plated supper in readiness for the interval. The Weatherley Centre staff had already created a Christmas Wonderland in the hall with fairy lights covering walls & ceiling.
By 7.30pm our first guests, of the 140 or so expected, were arriving & at 8 the music started & very soon the dance floor was crowded with people dancing. In true New Vintage Plus style, music was played to meet all people’s tastes & dance styles including the Gay Gordon, which got everyone onto the floor at the same time. The evening ended traditionally with everyone joining arms & singing Auld Lang Syne.
All agreed that it had been a marvellous evening, & guests as they left told us that they’d definitely be back next year on Saturday 28th November 2020 for our next Christmas Dance.
We would like to thank all our guests for coming & for their generosity when purchasing tickets for our tombola.
