A FREE tea dance will celebrate Older People’s Day.
Older people across Cheshire West are invited to take a twirl on the dance floor at Ellesmere Port Civic Hall on October 24, from 2-4pm as part of the celebrations.
Older People’s Day is officially held on Saturday, October 1.
Cllr Keith Board, the council’s newly appointed Older Person’s Champion, has organised the event as one of his first tasks in the role.
Residents will be able to take a trip down memory lane at the tea dance, which emphasises this year’s theme of getting and keeping active in later life.
Cllr Board said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for older people to get together, meet new people and try something different.”
Live music at the event will be provided by Steve Sound and tea and coffee will be available for a small charge to support the Older People’s Network.
