The Speedwell has announced that their popular Chance to Dance with Cream Tea events will take place every two months this year. The Tuesday afternoon socials, held between 2 pm and 5 pm at the community hall in Abbey Street, offer the chance to dance in many styles including folk, jive and modern while enjoying listening to local talented singer Victoria Starr. Tickets cost £5 per person and are available in advance from the LIC in the town hall or on the door.
January’s chance to dance was well attended with everyone enjoying sandwiches, cake, scones with cream and jam afterwards. The next chance to dance with cream tea takes place on Tuesday March 3rd. Speedwell trustee, Liz Dennis said: “The Speedwell was successful in applying to the Co-operative for money from the Co-operative Community Fund. This has enabled us to support these regular events and the Music in the Garden, which is held annually in June.”
Co-operative stores are able to raise funds for their chosen charities through the shoppers loyalty card scheme.
