The activities team at Harleston House, in Lowestoft, is always looking for new ways to link the home’s residents to the community.

And after residents had recently spoken about how they used to enjoy going to dances in days gone by, a tea dance was organised for the residents and their relatives to enjoy together.

The tea dance for residents, their family and friends was held at Trinity Methodist Church in Lowestoft with West End trio The Spinettes entertaining.

A Harleston Hpuse spokesman said: “A lovely afternoon was had by all and it has given us a taste of what the residents past was like when they went out for a tea dance.”

Event organiser Gareth Harding said: “What a lovely afternoon we have all shared together. Thank you to resident Marcella Bird for being the inspiration in putting on this event”.
