Anyone for a dance...

New Tea Dance to take place at Bury Football Club

Bury FC Community Trust will be holding its first ever Tea Dance this Friday (14th June) at the Bury FC Social Club.  This will be a chance for the over 50’s in the community to get together, to dust off their dancing shoes and to relive many of the dances and songs from their younger days.

This is a new event that will then take place on a monthly basis on the first Friday in every month.

For the first session, Bury FC staff have arranged to bring in a professional dance coach to help lead some of the dances and to remind people about some of the steps, to help encourage those that might not have taken to the dance floor for the past few years.

This will be a great event to help people socialise and to encourage people to stay fit, active and healthy. The session will run from 11am – 1pm and costs £2.50 including light refreshments.  Anyone that is interested in attending can simply turn up on the day as there is no need to book.

For those that are not able to make this inaugural Tea Dance, the next events will take place on Friday 5th July and Friday 2nd August, at the same time and venue.

The Tea Dance forms part of a wider programme of health activities organised by the Trust, particularly with the older generation in mind.  This includes the Nifty Fifty walking football programme, which takes place every Tuesday at, and the WOW Club (women only walking club) which takes place each Wednesday at 2pm which offers walks each week behind closed doors within Bury Football Club’s stadium, Gigg Lane.  The Trust also runs Memory Lane, our initiative for people with early onset dementia.

For more details about the Tea Dance or any of our other health projects,  please contact Joanne Shepherd, the Community Trust’s Health Officer on 08444 875 333 (low cost rate).
