Making ‘Silver Sunday’ special

Silver Sunday Tea Dance

Silver SundayOur Come Eat Together team were pleased to support Silver Sunday this year by hosting a Tea Dance at the beautiful Leeholme and Coundon Miners Welfare Hall in County Durham. Over 40 older people came together to Waltz, Foxtrot, Cha Cha and Quickstep to their favourite music.

Held on Sunday 4 October in connection with the Sir Simon Milton Foundation, Silver Sunday is a national celebration of older people and their contribution to communities and also a chance to keep active in body and spirit, try new things and, ultimately, overcome loneliness.

Dancn on Silver SundayDancing began at two o’clock and the floor was never empty until the serving of afternoon tea. Volunteers from Leeholme and Coundon Community Association helped to serve a delicious selection of sandwiches and cakes washed down with cups of tea. There was a raffle, with prizes ranging from scarfs to chocolates, followed by more dancing.

TTable with lovely buffest for Silver Sundayhe afternoon was enjoyed by all who attended, with many commenting that they would like to do it all over again the following week!

The Come Eat Together Team will be working closely with Leeholme and Coundon Community Association to hold future events and develop an exciting new lunch club to be held monthly at the Welfare Hall.
