THIRTY years of tea dancing was celebrated on Thursday by a local group.

Walsoken Tea Dance celebrated its milestone which it combined with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Dancers dressed up in red, white and blue and the village hall at Walsoken was decorated for the occasion.

Eighty-three-year-old Debbie Drew has been the chairlady of the group for the last 13 years. She explained it was started in 1982 by Wendy West and held at the former WI Hall in Wisbech.

From there the dancers had a spell at St Peter’s Church Hall, then the Queen Mary Centre and about three years ago, they moved to Walsoken.

The special jubilee tea dance included a buffet and music by organist Les Alett.

The group, which normally meets every Thursday at the village hall from 2pm to 4pm, now takes a break until August 9.
